Long Ago Cookies

OMG! I was going through my recipe box and found this. It is eons old but oh so good. Give it a try and your family will think you won the lottery (of cookies).

  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. good vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups flour, sifted
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup dried cranberries or chopped pecans (your choice)

 

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, add the eggs, one at a time, continuing to keep the texture very light.

Add the remaining dry ingredients (except for the fruit/nuts) slowly until well blended. Add the vanilla and beat until all is combined.

OnĀ  parchment lined cookie sheets, drop by teaspoonfuls and then with a fork dipped in flour, lightly press each one to slightly flatten.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes. They should be golden brown. Remove to a rack to completely cool down.
