Hello! Do ever get up in the morning and have the need to bake something sweet? Well, this morning was like that for me. I bought this recipe book, dated 1931, the other day and was intrigued by some of the recipes. The book is filled with really simple pleasures. Made me think that this would have been the types of foods that my grandmothers must have made when they were young moms.
I made a single batch which ended up to be about six dozen cookies. I think that these would be super good with a little lemon or orange zest added to the dough. The cookies are really light and not really sweet. Good dunkin’ cookies for tea or coffee.
This past weekend I found this wonderful old glass canister with vintage decals. My friend Lila had it for sale in her space and it had my name allllllll over it. (Thank you, Lila!!) More cookies are in the oven to fill it all up for my family.
But first, this tray of cookies are going to a very special friend, Miss Sandi.
There were other recipes in the book that sounded good….here are just a few….
My grandmothers and momma use to make wonderfully cool summer desserts, and the orange mousse layer reminded me of just one of them. I think I will make it for the weekend, which will ONLY BE 104 degrees!! Lemon ice cubes and orange mousse sounds perfectly refreshing!!
