"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
This recipe for Amish Sugar Cookies, by Ruth Haimerl, is from Enos and Amanda Yoder,
one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help
families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.
5 cup brown sugar 4 eggs 3 cup buttermilk 2 1/2 cup oleo or crisco 6 tsp. baking powder 3 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. vanilla 1 tsp. maple extract 10-12 cup flour
Combine all ingredients, except flour, mix well. Then add enough flour so dough can be rolled for cutting cookies. Place on ungreased cooke sheet. Bake at 350º for 10-12 minutes. Cookies may be dropped instead of rolled.
These stay soft and good for a week or two. They freeze well. This was from the recipe box of Elizabeth Beachy, Grandma Yoder's mother.
