Melt In Your Mouth Cookies
This cookie is like making a Martini by showing the Gin bottle the Vermouth.
Only enough flour is used so that the sugar is formed into a cookie.
½ cup butter (or oleo)
1 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 tsp vanilla
¾ cup sifted flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ cup chopped nuts (optional)
Mix well and drop a teaspoon onto cookie pan.
Bake at 400° F for 5 minutes.
These cookies become very flat when they are baked. Makes about 8 dozen cookies.
One could use a tablespoon for the measure, but then you could only eat one cookie without going into sugar shock.
