Mason and Dixon Cookies

Here's a vintage recipe,
and a darn good one....

Some things we just don't need to mess with, like this one from 1893. We just need to make 'em, and bake 'em and get to eating them right up.

  1. Hello. I'm lifting my head up from the ridiculous concentration of trying to write a book. I these cookies are the treat I deserve to make for all my, yet to be rewarded hard work.

  2. You are so right Drick, just leave well enough alone. These cookies have enough good stuff in them to satisfy everyone.

  3. I wholeheartedly agree. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. You've gotta love the oldies. :-)
