About our Homemade Cookies

They’re not just homemade cookies… they’re really part of who we are and where we came from. To save and cherish for our future generations to enjoy… Perhaps that sounds a little corny, but sometimes the tastes and smells of the past are some of the greatest memories that we cherish. We would like to share these with you and perhaps help you to remember the same.

Ingredients you can pronounce

Our cookies are always home-baked without preservatives. We use whole butter (no margarine, ever), farm fresh eggs, white or whole wheat flour, Crisco (pure vegetable shortening), granulated sugar and brown cane sugar, pure vanilla extract, organic raisins, Quaker Oatmeal, and Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chips as well as iodized salt, baking soda, cream of tartar, and cinnamon.

Simple Ingredients include whole eggs, real butter, cane brown sugar, pure granulated sugar and more.

Found this recipe in my favorite cookbook. Nothing fancy, but amazed that it is so close to Beth’s chocolate chip cookie recipe. I suppose the oatmeal and raisins add a smidgen of wholesomeness? A tried and true breakfast (did I say that?); yummy with a nice hot, cup of coffee.

Ingredients:
Crisco shortening, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, flour, Quaker oatmeal, raisins, baking soda, salt.
