As requested by scalderwood, two of the recipes from yesterday's Baking Day.

Lindy Cookies

(Chocolate Chip-Oatmeal Cookies)

1cup butter or oleo

¾cup brown sugar

¾cup granulated sugar


1tsp. hot water

2cups flour

1tsp. soda

1tsp. salt

2cup oatmeal

1tsp. vanilla

12oz. chocolate chips

Mix butter and eggs, add sugars. Cream together. Add hot water and vanilla. Slowly add dry ingredients, then mix in chips.

Bake at 350-375° for 6 or 7 minutes. Don't over bake!

These cookies have been my favorite since I was a wee little child. It was Kathi Strong, I believe, who first called them Lindy cookies, since they are mom's recipe. These are much better than store bought chocolate chip cookies and even better than Toll House cookies.

Butterscotch Cookies

(AKA Icebox Cookies)

4cup brown sugar

1cup butter


6½cup flour

1Tbsp soda

1tsp cream of tartar

Mix sugar and butter, add eggs. Sift together (or mix with wire whisk)dry ingredients. Add to sugar mixture. Make into 1 or 2 loaves, set overnight in refrigerator. Slice into 70 cookies. Bake at 375°for 10 minutes.

Mom usually reserves the last ½ cup of flour for when she rolls the dough into loaves. These cookies are best served with a cup of coffee.

Straight out of the family cookbook! I love Cut & Paste. :-)

Nabbed the Lindy cookie recipe! I've been wanting to do something with oatmeal & chocolate chips for a while, so one of these days I'll give this a shot. :)
