Old Fashioned Cookie from the 1940's and 50's.


An old fashioned cookie from the 1940's and 50's.


1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
3 eggs
2 tablespoons buttermilk or sour milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped walnuts
2 cups chopped dates


Preheat the oven to 350°. Cream the butter, and sugar until light and fluffy. With the mixer running, add the eggs, one at a time, until well-incorporated. Add the buttermilk or sour milk and vanilla. Stir together the flour, cinnamon, freshly ground nutmeg, cloves, allspice, baking soda, and salt. Turn the mixer to low and add the flour mixture. Stir in the walnuts and dates. Scoop or drop by tablespoonfuls onto parchment-lined cookie sheets, press down slightly, and bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to cooling racks to cool thoroughly. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 6 dozen.
