Miller & Pain was one of the leading clothing and retail stores in our area. The store is now gone but what great memories I have of it. This is an old cookie recipe from the old Miller & Paine bakery. They sold these Crumb Cookies there and the recipe leaked out after they closed. It’s a great recipe to use up all those extra cake pieces or left over cookies. It’s a spice cookie so would be great for a Fall flavor. I’ll print it as it was written. It calls for margarine but I’m sure you could use butter or Crisco.


1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup margarine
3 beaten eggs
4 or 5 cups of cake and cookie crumbs. Anything goes. Any flavor.
3/4 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cups nuts, chopped
1/4 cup milk
5 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup molasses or honey
2 cups raisins, chopped


Cream sugar and margarine, beat in eggs and molasses; stir n remaining ingredients.


Roll into walnut sized balls, then roll in sugar.

Press with fork and bake 10 to 12 minutes at 350 degrees.
