    puppitypup's Note:

    A very old-fashioned flat,crisp cookie using baker's ammonia. This eliminates the baking soda/baking powder taste from the cookies, leaving pure flavor. From the King Arthur flour sack.

    Serves: 36


    dozen c ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Lightly grease two baking sheets.
    2. 2
      Beat together the sugar, butter, salt and vanilla.
    3. 3
      Add the flour and baker's ammonia and beat for up to 5 minutes, until the dough comes together. It will seem quite dry at first, but keep beating, eventually it will clump up and become cohesive.
    4. 4
      Break off pieces of dough about the size of a large gumball. Roll them into balls, then roll them in coarse sugar.
    5. 5
      Put them on the prepared baking sheets, and use the bottom of a glass to flatten them to about 1/4" thick.
    6. 6
      Bake the cookies for 25 to 30 minutes, until they are a very light golden brown around the edges.
    7. 7
      Remove them from oven and transfer to a rack to cool.

      These cookies are crispy and sweet with a clean taste as promised in the description and very quick and easy to make. For the coarse sugar I used Demerara style pure cane brown sugar. Made for the Potluck tag.
