Aunt Jenny makes cookies


I'm sure Elmer's mother will be just thrilled to have Aunt Jenny tell her aaaaaaaaaall about her Spry cookies. Elmer's lip curls into a sneer as he reveals to Aunt Jenny Mother's secret shameful sub-standard cookie-making. Why can't Mother be more like Aunt Jenny? Aunt Jenny's grin widens over her glistening, oddly sharp teeth at this news. She will tell Mother. Oh yes. And one more soul will be saved by the power of Spry.

Brown Rim Cookies
A pretty brown edge around each cookie just takes my eye!
1 cup Spry
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
2 1/2 cups sifted flour

Combine Spry, salt, and vanilla. Add sugar, then beaten eggs, and beat thoroughly. . . . Add flour and mix well. . . . Drop from teaspoon on Spry-coated baking sheets. (Or press though pastry bag.) Let stand a few minutes, then flatten cookies by stamping with a glass covered with a damp cloth. . . . Bake in a moderately hot oven (375 degrees F.) 8 to 10 minutes, or until delicately browned. . . . Makes 4 1/2 dozen.


These have got to be like the most boring cookies ever.

Mama's little goblin will demand Spry from now on.

With photos like this, reminds me of The Munsters. Wonder what's in those cookies ???

Spry, of course. Lots of Spry. Lots and lots of creamy digestible Spry. The text indicates that what makes Spry cookies special is that you can just put spoonfuls of dough on the sheet instead of rolling the dough out. Wow! Just for you though, I'll add a sample.

Wait a minute... no... oh no... Jenny Jo... you aren't... you aren't an aunt, are you? An aunt with a shortening fixation? If you are, I LOVE Spry. Love it with all my heart! Please. Please just don't look at me.

An entire cup of shortening? Those cookies are beyond boring, they sound awful.

Jenny Jo said...

No, my brother hasn't popped out a little goblin yet. Maybe that's what it takes for the Spry urge to kick in.

Elmer's Mother just tell him making cookies is too much work, what she really means is letting him have cookies and dealing with his sugar high is too much work. LOL!

I bet you are totally right!
