These cookies bring back warm memories of childhood and growing up. My mother made these often, and they were so delicious warm out of the oven. They’re like a brown sugar cookie, and kids of all ages like them.
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 3/4 cup butter
- 1/2 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon soda
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- (1 cup nuts optional – we don’t add the nuts)
Cream the eggs, brown sugar, and butter. Add the dry ingredients. Mix well. Form cookie dough into a long roll about 2 inches in diameter. Wrap well with wax paper. Chill for a few hours. Slice and bake at 350 degrees as needed. Bake 8-9 minutes for a soft cookie and 10-11 minutes for a crisper cookie.
The cool thing about this recipe is that the dough can be made a day or several days before it’s needed as long as it’s well-wrapped. If it’s going to be kept for several days, it would be good to store the dough in a large gallon size plastic bag after wrapping with wax paper.
