Nothing like an old fashioned cookie to make one nostalgic. This recipe is written out exactly as it was in Helen's cook book.

Helen's Fruit Cookies

1 pkg. mince meat
1 1/4 cups water, stew till thick.
Cream 1 1/2 cups sugar with 3/4 cups melted shortening *(cooled). Add 1 beaten egg and 1 scant tsp. salt. Dissolve 1.2 tsp. soda in cooled mince meat. Put 1 tsp. baking powder in 3 1/2 cups flour sifted. Blend all ingredients together thoroughly and drop from spoon on buttered tin. Bake 8-10 minutes in hot oven.*
*Bake at 400 degrees.
*You could replace the shortening with butter to make them healthier.
