Lightly grease baking sheets. Sift flour with baking soda; set aside. In a mixing bowl, mix shortening, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, eggs and vanilla until well blended. Stir in half of the flour and baking soda mixture, nuts, chopped apple and chopped raisins. Blend in milk then stir in remaining flour mixture. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto greased baking sheets. Bake apple raisin cookies at 400° for 10 to 14 minutes, or until done.
VANILLA ICING OR GLAZE
2 cups confectioners' sugar, sift before measuring
1 1/2 tablespoons butter, soft
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 to 4 tablespoons milk
Combine all icing ingredients in small mixing bowl. Stir until smooth and well blended. Adjust for spreading consistency if necessary, adding more milk or more confectioners' sugar. Spread on warm cookies.
I make these with a variety of nuts: almonds, pecans and cashews have all been good. Just make sure to chop them small. I've never made the glaze -- I find the cookies are delicious as is, and plenty sweet. Be sure to grease your pan or use parchment paper!
