Time for cookie baking - Don likes a cookie now and then in his lunch box.
Good ingredients make good cookies. Let's bake some oatmeal raisin cookies
My old standby Betty Crocker cookie book. This is my second one - wore the first one out and was able to find another on ebay.
Who can go wrong with the best cookie from 1900 to 1910?
Let's start mixing
Add molasses - it really gives the cookies their special flavor
Some historical notes. Another note of interest - my grandfather was a young teenager at the time and he was there watching when the Wright Brothers took their first flight. Funny thing is - he only flew in an airplane twice in his whole life .
This was my kids' favorite page in the whole book. They would pull up a stool and sit and look at this page while I baked.
Cookies are done. Would you like a cup of tea with your cookies?
What is your favorite cookie?
