Let's bake!

It is raining/snowing today, there is chaos in London and it is April Fool's. Let's think of other things. My hair is looking great and I baked cookies yesterday. (those two have nothing in common, but it is good to share the little things)
I ended up making Hermits, which are a cookie more common to New England. They are slightly spicy and I found the recipe a good way to use up some things and not use too much of things I was short on. Economical and frugal.
The recipe came from the Fannie Farmer Baking Book edited by Marion Cunningham. If you talk to people in the book/food world, everyone has something delightful to say about her. She also writes a terrific cookbook. She is equal parts common sense and inspiration.
I was looking to use up some fried fruit or nuts that were in the cupboard. And this fit the bill.
I made a few of my own modifications to the recipe as I lacked shortening and I like more cinnamon in my cookies.
