Clara, 93, cooks brunch from her Depression-era childhood, to celebrate ThemeThursday.
- Gruel ?.... 'No'
- Coffee ?... 'Yes'
"First thing we're going to make is sugar cookies"
Not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn't that.
Had to try them, so I made a one-third batch:
1 large egg (lightly beaten)Verdict: 'Okay' - they did all disappear by 6pm.
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
pinch of salt
Rolled out using more flour.
Then cut into turd-like shapes
- and put on ungreased pan.
350' F oven, for ~ 16 min
(would be better with vanilla +/ spices)
Had to lol, tho. Coffee & two kinds of sugar cookies.
Nutritionist's nightmare, but 'hey' Clara's still here!
warning - The longer you let them sit around however, the more they become Depression-era tooth-breakers.
so, 'Flapper Biscotti', anyone?
notice (at 2:57) there's a donut bag on her counter!
