My best friend always makes her Mom's recipe for Snickerdoodles every Christmas. I always look forward to them. This was a recipe my Mom had for them, but it's not like her Mom's. I think my friend's Mom left out the nuts and raisins. Either way, YUM!

1/2 C. unsalted butter
3/4 C sugar
1 whole egg
1 egg yolk
1 2/3 C flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 C walnut pieces
1/2 C raisins
1/2 tsp nutmeg
sugar & cinnamon to sprinkle

Cream together butter & sugar. Beat in whole egg and egg yolk.  Sift together flour, baking soda & nutmeg. Mix into batter.  Fold in nuts & raisins.  Drop from a teaspoon 2" apart on a greased cookie sheet.  Sprinkle sugar & cinnamon on top. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes. Makes 5 dozen.
