There are a number of versions of these old-fashioned Rock Cookies, but this one is flavored with cinnamon, allspice and coffee and contains both raisins and chopped pecans as  "the rocks". 

How to Make It

Step 1

Cream butter in a large mixing bowl; gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add coffee, stirring well.

Step 2

Combine flour, soda, cinnamon, and allspice in a large mixing bowl. Stir in raisins and pecans to coat well; add to creamed mixture.

Step 3

Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for 8 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets, and cool on wire racks.

When I mixed the coffee and egg in with the sugar and margarine, it looked like the egg cooked, it got all lumpy and the coffee didn't mix in at all. I used it anyway because we had run out of brown sugar... when we added the dry ingredients it all seemed to mix well. These turned out rather "cakey", I couldn't taste the coffee at all, but other than that it was a pretty good cookie.
