Shrewsbury "cake" from Eutaw Plantation, 1808

This recipe for what we would call cookies was derived from an original used for a wedding at Eutaw Plantation near Eutawville, SC in 1808 and is a modern version created by a family member of the originator of the recipe almost 200 years later. It was posted in "Epiphany Entertains" a cookbook from the Episcopal Church in Eutawville published several years ago. She suggests looking for the rosewater at a store that sells aroma-therapy products.
