Snack Time Cookies Aunt Jess
1 ½ C. sugar
1 C. shortening (2 sticks oleo)
3 C. flour
1 ½ t. soda
Drop – Don’t know oven temp. Just experiment. Jess says she uses her mixer and just sorta puts everything [missing word: in?] at once.
[In my mother’s hand] 10 min @ 350˚
I’m charmed here by the reference to oleo (it strikes me as very WWII-era) and by Esther’s molasses brand transcription error. (Did she miss the Uncle Remus reference?) Clearly, this stained and torn card saw some use, but I wish I recalled the cookies. Perhaps I’ll have to procure some molasses and bake up a batch.
I bet they’d pair wonderfully with a gin & tonic.
