    Ice Box Cookies
   
    Ice box cookies are a boon for the busy person
   because they can be prepared in advance and stored in
   the freezer until needed. Just slice and bake when
   desired, and you have a great home made cookie.
   
    If you like, use whole wheat flour and add 1/2 cup
   ground peanuts to the dough.
   
    In a large bowl, cream the shortening and peanut
   butter, blending well. Add the honey, mixing it in
   thoroughly. Gradually blend in sugar. Beat in egg and
   vanilla.
   
    Sift together the flour with baking powder, baking
   soda and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the
   creamed mixture. Stir in the raisins, if using. Shape
   in a roll. Wrap in waxed paper and chill thoroughly.
   
    Preheat oven to 350ø. Cut chilled dough into thin
   slices and bake on greased cookie sheets at 350ø for
   10-12 minutes.
