Original recipe yields 3 dozen



  1. Cream together eggs, butter, sugar and baking powder. Stir in the flour. Dough will be stiff.
  2. Shape in walnut sized balls and flatten with the bottom of a glass.
  3. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 8 minutes. If you brown them, you've overbaked them. These may also be rolled out and cut with cookie cutters.

I made these and MAN were they good. Yes please cook these for 8 to 10 min. I put cream cheese frosting on some of them and my family went wild. Basic recipe and so easy.



Thanks for posting this. This is a cookie my grandmother made, back when we ate the dough before she could cook it!
