As you can see, the recipe isn't very descriptive. My grandmother just knew what to do from memory. So, if you'd like to make these cookies, here's what I did:
-Use an electric mixer to combine all of the ingredients listed above.
-Take a mini-ice cream scoop to drop perfect-sized cookies onto a non-stick baking sheet
-Bake at 425 degrees but ONLY for 8-9 minutes, NOT 11-12 minutes as it says on the card. My first batch went in for 11 minutes and they were burnt to a crisp! I think they need a lesser baking time because I was using a dark non-stick pan, which I don't think my grandmother had 'back in the day'.
-Remove from the oven and sprinkle with white sugar while cookies are still on the sheet. After about a minute, place on a wire rack to cool.
I enjoyed a couple cookies fresh from the oven with some hot apple cider that I got from the orchard last weekend. Please note the use of my FAVORITE mug!
And this is what Kitty was doing while I was baking...
