Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

It's been a weekend of baking, eating, cooking and then eating again. Tonight's our huge Thanksgiving dinner with my family. One more day of stuffing, then that's it ;) Who else is having their big dinner tonight?

I haven't posted anything for a few months...where did the summer go? Hope you're all well!

Thought I'd share an easy recipe from the recipe box of my mom. Hermits (which I've been all long weekend).

Hermits - makes about 36

1.5 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (I buy whole nutmeg)
pinch of salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts and a little extra to sprinkle on tops of cookies

Preheat oven to 375f/190c. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla and beat well. Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt, and combine well. Stir in raisins and walnuts.
Drop about a tablespoon of mixture onto lined baking sheet, then sprinkle tops with extra chopped walnuts. Bake for about 10-12 minutes.

That's it! Pretty simple to make. 

Have a great day!
