My DH told me a story about cookies that his Mom and Grandma used to make.... they don't really have a name, he calls them "Grandma" cookies! His Grandma called them Sweet Milk Cookies. Either way, they are just delicious. I have no idea where this recipe is from as DH had it scribbled on a piece of paper. Recipe is from about the 1930's to 1940's. **These are best when frosted.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all ingredients except flour together. Add enough flour to make the dough roll-able.
  3. Refrigerate approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  4. Roll dough out to approximately 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutter.
  5. Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. If you make a rolled cookie instead of a cutout may need to increase baking time.
  6. Allow to cool in cookie sheet 5 minutes before transferring to cooling racks.

Made these for KK's Cookie Exchange Event. These made up into very nice and tasty taste treats, frosted with a nice cinnamon sugar frosting. Everyone here raved as did the people who received them in their gift baskets. Thank you for a nice recipe, and please thank your dear husband for saving it.
