This cookie recipe has been handed down to me from my grandmother. It has been in the family for at least 4 generations.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 eggs
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets.
Cream the butter. Add in the eggs, sugar, and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, stir the flour and baking powder together.
Add flour mixture to butter mixture. NOTE: If batter is too dry, add a bit of milk.
Use hands to shape pieces of dough into loop-shaped cookies.
Place on cookie sheets and bake 8 to 10 minutes.
Cool and frost.
