Oldie, but Goodie recipe…in response to someone asking for a cookie recipe. This was made on Monday’s, when ladies always did the laundry, these were made while the laundry was working so the family had warm, yummy cookies for Monday evening dinner. These used any extras you might find in the kitchen on any given Monday. I must give the credit for these cookies to a lovely lady in the little coal mining town that I grew up in…Mrs. Thelma Williams
WASHBOARD COOKIES – I love the name!
