Found this sugar cookie recipe in the newspaper this morning.  It's from 1909, long before anyone cared about  "eating healthy."    In short, the cookies should be delicious.  :)

Sugar Cookies

4 cups flour
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 heaping teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons of milk
Dash of lemon
Dash of nutmeg

Rub butter and flour together
Add sugar
Beat in eggs, milk and flavorings

Bake in 350 oven for 7-8 minutes

I think I have one sugar cookie recipe here, and I don't remember it having that many eggs, but you may be right.

One of my favorite cookies is the fake Neiman Marcus thing that circulated many years ago. The story of how it came to be public is a sham but the cookies are delicious.

Everything, and anything is in moderation.  Any recipes can be adjusted, and ingredients can be substituted for similar ones.  Depending on what kind the cookies, cakes, pies, and any other baked desserts are, I like them.  I'm not a dessert eater, though.

My wife has dozens of very creative and in some instances, simply amazing cookie recipes.

Salted caramel chocolate chip
Oatmeal Craisin walnut
Triple chocolate.
Chocolate peanut butter chip.
Some other ones I couldn't even tell you the ingredients for.

No way I could go low carb right now.

Can you ask her for the salted caramel chocolate chip and the chocolate peanut butter chip recipes?

Better yet -  here - show her these recipes and ask her if either or both look close to the one she uses:

She says she doesn't write them down.

She says she uses more vanilla than recipes call for and more brown sugar less white sugar then recipes call for.

Other that that its all about what type of flavored chips she wants to put in it.

Also she says don't over mix or bake too long.

Over mixing makes them tougher and they dry out faster.  under bake them by a minute or two and they stay soft and chewy.

My wife makes the best cookies ever.

Lucky man.


Baking is science.  There's things you just can't do (like over-softening the butter) without changing the outcome.  My wife makes hockey pucks.  Flat, stiff.  At least the taste good, though.  :lol:

My wife's chocolate chip cookies will fold in half without breaking for up to a week after she bakes them.

You are right!  I am a lucky man!

My wife was reading this thread and she says she melts her butter all the way to liquid.  Also she never uses unsalted butter even if a recipe calls for it.

The last flavor she made today was chocolate chip toffee.

Really good stuff.

I got to taste each type but unfortunately they have been packed up for later in the week.  :(
