Marmalade Chews

This recipe is about 70 years old.  It is from my husband's grandmother's collection.  I'm going to write it down just as it is written.  They never went into great detail back then with recipes.  They are a chewy, raisin studded, spicy oatmeal cookie.  They are a really nice fall cookie and a great cookie jar filler!
