Spice cookies filled with nuts and raisins

There's something about fall that makes a good cook think of sugar and spice, cakes, pies, and cookies and good things from the oven that have been missed during the summer months.

This doesn't mean that cookies aren't good all year around. These are full of delicious spices but also have a tangy, orange- lemon flavor and lots of raisins and nuts as well.
