Remember these cookies? They are the delicious cookies my wonderful neighbor brought to me a couple of weeks ago.
I had decided I was going to return her container with my own cookies but it took me awhile because we kept eating the cookies before I could deliver them down the road. Not only did I want to thank her for the cookies I also HAD to have the recipe.
Here is the yummy recipe. It's from an old cookbook and written out in paragraph form.
Southern Cream Cookies
Cream 1 cup shortening with 2 cups sugar; add 3 beaten eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 cup sour cream. Mix well. Sift 5 cups sifted all-purpose flour with 3 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon satl, and 1/2 teaspoon soda. Add to creamed mixture. Add 1 1/2 cups broken walnuts. Drop from teaspoon onto greased cookie sheet. Bake 350 degrees about 15 minutes. I then make a simple icing of powdered sugar, vanilla & milk and poured over the cooled cookies. Makes 6 dozen cookies.
This will make a TON of cookies to be prepared. Get out the milk and enjoy!
