    MarlaM's Note:

    My daughter's boyfriend had to make these cookies for a high school history class. They seemed pretty simple to make and while they are a bit plain, they have a good flavor. Here is the description that is typed on the recipe: On Oct. 25, 1774, 51 ladies of Edmenton, NC met in the home of Elizabeth King to express their indignation over the British tax on tea. They resolved at the tea party: "We the Ladies of Edenton do hereby solemnly engage not to conform to the pernicious practice of drinking tea." At this gathering, cookies, made according to this recipe, were served. Yield will depend on the size of cookie you make. Cook time is based on total time it took to bake all the batches and does not include the time it takes to chill the dough.
