"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Nancy Switzer


C butter
3 C sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3 eggs
C milk
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
5 C flour

Preheat oven to 350.
Cream together, butter and sugar. Add vanilla and eggs. Blend well. Add milk, salt, baking powder and blend well.
Add flour, one cup at a time, until dough is desired consistency. Needs to be stiff, but not too much so. Drop by large rounded spoonfuls on lightly sprayed cookie sheet.

This dough also works well for cut out cookies. The dough will handle better if you have time to chill it. Use a floured tea towel for easier transfer to pan. Pat out dough to a little thicker than inch and cut into desired shapes.

Bake 15 minutes or until light brown around the edges.

Love one another deeply from the heart.
I Peter 1:22
