YUM! Simple and tasty, with very few ingredients, and plenty of room for 'playing around!' I halved this recipe, which yielded 40 cookies. I also halved the dough, added some pecans and 1/2 tsp. of vanilla to one half, before refrigeration. These baked in 12 minutes, using 2 cookie sheets or 10, when only baking 1 sheet. I really like the texture (soft), and I know DH will just love them! Made for the Best of 2010 tag game! Thanks for sharing, Mandy ny.

This is the the 1950 Betty Crocker Picture Cookbook recipe for Brown Sugar Drops. Instructions for all sorts of mix ins are listed as well. To make it healthier, sub almond milk and vinegar for the buttermilk, and coconut oil for the shortening. Chill well . Great base for choc chip cookies

one of my favorite cookies, everyone at works ask for them. I uasyally use buttermilk, that is what the recipe I was giving years ago said.

Good, not overly sweet cookie with nice flavor-it might not be sweet enough for some, but I liked them! Next time I may add nuts, just because I love nuts in my cookies and maybe a little spice for added flavor. Cake-like texture and this would make a decent bar cookie too! I made for Spring PAC 2010-thanks!
