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! 


Marmalade Chews

Cream :  2/3 cup shortening
                 1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
                 1 cup white sugar
Add:  2 beaten eggs

               1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Add to creamed mixture and combine well.  Blend in 2 cups rolled oats, 1/2 cup marmalade, 1 cup raisins.  Drop by teaspoons onto lightly greased cookie sheets.  Bake at 350 degrees F. for 15 minutes.
