Mundo FOX Rocks


Democrats should have seen this coming!

Mundo FOX Rocks
Makes 76 cookies

As sweet as a Colombian telenovela.

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 eggs
3 cups sifted flour 
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
2 cups raisins
1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbsp. milk

Heat oven to 375°F.

Cream butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar 3 minutes until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Mix flour with baking soda, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, salt and nutmeg.  Stir flour mixture, raisins and walnuts into batter using wooden spoon or spatula until well blended.

Drop dough by tablespoons onto parchment-lined (or lightly greased) baking sheet.  Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until just brown on bottoms.  Remove with metal spatula to wire racks.  Mix powdered sugar and milk to make a thin glaze; brush over cookies and cool completely.

Rocks are traditional German spice cookies.  My grandmother use to make them all the time.  This is her recipe, passed down by my Uncle Elmer.  I've added a sweet glaze to the original recipe, and I like to  mix dark and golden raisins.
