Bakin cookies and bars is somethin that Lutheran ladies love to do, and the Immanuel Lutheran Dorcas Society has some very special recipes for sweet tooths (sweet teeth?) in their cookbook, Generations of Good Cookin.
This recipe for Old Fashion Cookies is courtesy of Karen Freudenberg.
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. oil or Crisco (go for the Crisco!)
1 c. sour cream
1/2 tsp. soda
2 3/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. bakin powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. nuts (what kind? who cares. you decide.)
(Remember, these are OLD FASHION cookies, so no fancy-pants, new-fangled ingredients here!)
Oven temp: 350 degrees OR 400 degrees - take your pick
Pan size: cookie sheet(s), ungreased (I guess...doesn't say whether to grease them or not)
Mix sugar and oil OR Crisco together until creamy; add eggs and sour cream. Stir together dry ingredients and nuts. Add to creamy mixture and mix until all dry ingredients are moistened. (MOIST!) Chill in bowl for 2 hours. Drop by teaspoon on cookie sheet. May bake at 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes or 400 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes until very light brown.
