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 started low carbing again on Monday. My wife is in the kitchen making Eggnog Cookies.

 

This no time of the year to be low carbing.

 

Too much good stuff to eat!!! :)

 

 

EDIT: Are you diabetic?

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.

Wife is baking cookies for the week. First up, Drunken(made with vanilla rum) Snickerdoodles.

 

Yummy!! I love being her taste tester!

 

Next up Cranberry Orange Oatmeal.

 

Will report back in a bit!

 

:drool:

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. :(

Oh and the house smells amazing!

I'm sure it does. Send me over a dozen when done. ;)

She only made 9 dozen today. I have a feeling she isn't finished yet. There are still 3 days until Christmas.

 

Does she make up little gift boxes and give them as gifts?

Not really. She puts them in Tupperware and we take them to work and parties and such. She has them all divided up.

 

We are not traditionalists when it comes to Christmas. We don't give gifts. We don't even put up a tree. But we like cookies so we take them to every gathering we go too from Thanksgiving through New Years.

When my father was still alive the holidays brought two major food projects that I assited on. One was four different batches of cookies: Chocolate chip, peanut butter, lebkuchen (a spicy cookie laden with dried fruits), and one alternately called Russian Teacakes or Mexican Wedding cakes (small half dome cookies rich with buttter and finely ground almonds.

 

The other project? Home made, ground, and stuffed, fresh kielbasa.

Hmmm... How does she get the to keep shape?
