DIRECTIONS

  • Beat eggs until light, then gradually mix in sugar, half of the caraway seed (2 t), and cream.
  • Sift flour together with baking powder and salt, and mix into egg mixture to form dough.
  • Chill dough, then toss on a floured board, and roll one-half inch thick.
  • Sprinkle with the rest of the caraway seed (2t) and roll to one-fourth inch thick.
  • Shape cookies with a small round cutter, first dipped in flour.
  • Bake on a buttered sheet.
  • Fannie Farmer's cookbook doesn't provide baking temperature and time, so your guess is as good as mine. I'm going to try 350 or 375 for 8-14 minutes. If you get good results, share your tips in the comments.
