This recipe for French Cookies, by Kathy Carter, is from The Carter Family Cookbook ,
one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help
families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.
2 cups brown sugar 1 cup hot water. Dissolve 1 tsp. soda in it 1 tsp. baking powder 1 cup butter or lard. 3 cups flour 1 tsp. cinnamon 2 eggs 1 cup of raisins or chocolate chips. ( I prefer the chocolate!!!)
Put all ingredients in large bowl. DO NOT STIR UNTIL EVERYTHING IS ADDED. Bake on greased cookie sheet. Spread with powder sugar icing while still warm. Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 min. Check often. It tends to bake faster than you think.
