I love recipes with stories. This recipe is from my dear friend, Tina, who refuses to cook at home. She has such fond memories of this recipe, however, that once a year she turns on her oven and bakes these wonderful cookies. This recipe has been a tradition in her family for generations. Her grandfather moved to the U.S. from Scotland and was in charge of the gardens at one of the Woolworth’s estates. (Tina is also a wonderful gardener.)
- 1 cup softened butter (2 sticks)
- ¾ cup powdered sugar
- 2 cups flour
With your mixer cream butter and sugar together. Gradually add the flour to form dough.
