Coffee Drop Cookies

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by FrannieJ

This great little drop cookie is from Household Searchlight cookbook, and a recipe that I grew up was the first recipe I was ever given free reign of the kitchen with...they are great with cold milk or a cup of hot coffee or cocoa.

This is a very forgiving recipe! I messed up and got the order of ingredients wrong, but the cookies came out tasty in spite of me. I left out the raisins at my family's insistence, but did use chopped walnuts. A nice little treat! Made for Alphabet Soup Tag.
