Belated Happy St. David's Day

For those of you who didn't jot it down last year...

½ cup (1 stick) butter
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup shortening
6 cups flour
2 cups sugar
6 tsp. baking powder
3 eggs
½ cup milk
1 tsp. salt
1 cup raisins or currants
1 tsp. nutmeg

Mix together butter, shortening, sugar, eggs and milk. Sift together and add dry ingredients. Add raisins and mix. (A heavy-duty mixer comes in handy for this; dough is stiff.) Roll out dough to about 1/8" and cut into circles. Bake as you would pancakes on a 400 degree electric griddle. Do not overbake; they don't take long to brown and overbaking makes them hard as a rock. Watch carefully and you will see them begin to puff up in about 1 ½ minutes and that means it's time to turn them. The second side will take only about 1 minute. They will be soft but as they cool on a rack they harden a little. Makes about 6 doz.
