Grandma's Cookies

A few months back, we had a pot luck get together at Joe and Tom's house. We had a great time and even got to meet some of my future son-in-law's family members for the first time. When it was time to set up the dessert table, I spotted these great little cookies. When I tasted them, it brought me back a few decades. You just knew that every little cookie was made from scratch with patience and love. I just had to have the recipe. Tom's Aunt Kathy was kind enough to get it for me and of course they are called "Grandma's Cookies". Just have to make these for Christmas.

Grandma's Cookies
  • 4 cups of flour
  • 1 heaping cup of sugar
  • 4 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 stick of butter (softened)
  • 3 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs to sugar mixture and mix in. In a separate bowl, mix flour and baking powder. Add flour mixture to wet ingredients a little at a time.  Knead after all 4 cups of flour are mixed in.  Divide dough into 2 balls.  (You can make ahead and refrigerate)

Roll dough into small pencil thin pieces.  Shape into an "S".  Place on cookie sheet and bake until golden at the bottom. (375 degrees for 15 minutes)

Note:  You can roll in sesame seeds or sprinkle with candy nonpareils and then bake.
