Date: Thu, 28 Sep 1995 23:23:26 GMT Found another good fund raiser cookie recipe. Cream together shortening, sugars, eggs and vanilla. Sift together flour, soda, salt, baking powder and cloves. Mix the creamed mixture with flour mixture. Fold in the drained fruit cocktail and nuts. Drop by spoonfuls on cookie sheet. Bake 15 minutes at 400 degrees. Cookies are best after sitting for one day. You may use a powdered sugar icing to spread on cookies, if desired.
