The Original Girl Scout Cookies

When the Girl Scouts started selling cookies, this was the recipe they used. Each girl baked the cookies at home and sold them to family and friends to earn money for their troop. So, for our meeting today (and since it's cookie season), I made these for our troop. I did melt some semi-sweet chocolate to pipe a question-mark on each cookie since they were earning their Detective badge today. The girls proclaimed them "absolutely delicious," and they're right!

1 c. butter
1 c. sugar
2 Tbs. milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder

Cream butter and sugar, then add well beaten eggs, milk, vanilla. Next add flour and baking powder, and combine. Then roll out and cut into shapes, or scoop into balls and bake on parchment. Sprinkle sugar on top if desired, and bake in a quick oven (375-degrees F) for about 8 minutes per pan. 

This amount can make six to seven dozen. 

The original and best...
