1/2 tsp nutmeg
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp cloves
1 egg
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 cup light molasses
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 cup raisins
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg then molasses: mix to blend well.
Sift together flour, spices, soda and salt. Stir into creamed mixture. Stir in raisins and walnuts. Spread in a greased 13"x9"x3" inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees 20 to 25 minutes until center is still soft but springs back to the touch. Cut into 24 bars.
