These are a classic of my Gram B's. I'm pretty sure I'm the only one in the family that has the recipe & makes them. It would be a shame to let it end with me!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream together butter, sugars, egg yolk and sour milk (I add 1 tbsp of sour cream to milk and whisk).
  2. Mix dry ingredients.
  3. Mix dry ingredients into creamed butter mixture.
  4. Fold stiffened egg white into batter.
  5. Drop batter onto cookie sheets 1 inch apart. sprinkle with additional sugar or cinnamon-sugar mixture, if desired.
  6. Bake at 375°F for 8-10 minutes.

These cookies certainly are soft and fluffy. My very young gd ate them with ease, and I packed some up for her to take home. I'm sure I will be making these again.
thanks for posting the recipe.
