Dr. Price’s Cookies No. 1 (Lemon or Orange Cookies) – 1887

I tried this recipe again a couple of months ago when I wanted to make lemon cookies.  The cream really makes this recipe!  Also, it’s a huge recipe, making lots of cookies, so I sometimes cut it in half.  Again, since the recipe came out of a cookbook from 1887, there are no specific baking directions.

COOKIES No. 1 (Lemon or Orange Cookies)

Eight cups of flour, two of sugar, one of butter, one cup of sweet cream, two eggs, one heaping teaspoonful baking powder, flavor with orange or lemon extract to taste.  Sift white sugar over when rolled out for cutting.
