Papaya puree makes for a great flavor enhancement and really makes these cookies moist. The addition of nutmeg, ground cloves really are perfect.

  • Servings:


1 cup Ripe Papaya Puree
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 cup Sugar
½ tsp Nutmeg
1 tsp Soda
½ tsp Ground Cloves
½ cup Shortening
½ tsp Salt
1 Egg, beaten
1 cup Chopped Nuts
2 cups Flour


Cream shortening and sugar, then add puree and soda. Mix until creamy. Add egg, and flour sifted with spices. Mix in nuts. Refrigerate cookie dough for 1 hour to prevent cookies from spreading on cookie sheet. Drop by spoonfuls on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake, at 350 degrees, for 15 minutes.
