A Little Something Sweet

Now that our scanner is working again, I can get more old pics saved. Here's a photo of my Lil' Grammy from 1940, to go with a cookie recipe from her collection. I love how her recipes are concise and presume you know what you're doing in the kitchen.

Brown Sugar Cookies

1 cup shortening
2 cups brown sugar (light brown is best)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp soda
1 tsp b. powder
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup walnuts (optional)

Mix. Make into rolls. Chill in fridge. Slice & bake 350 about 10 mins (split baking time between lower and upper racks.)
