Cooking Recipes Catalogue

I don't know where this recipe originated, but it was a favorite of my Mom's when I was growing up. Her notes on the recipe says, "County Fair Winner". The dough is batter-like in consistency and cookies are very soft and cake-like.

INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  • Cream the margarine and sugar well. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add the buttermilk.
  • Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder and add to the creamed mixture.
  • Add 1/4 cup of vanilla (yes, this is correct) and nutmeg, and blend well. Let dough rest for 10 minutes.
  • Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with additional sugar.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
