Pappy’s Are Favorites
STIR UP a batch of Pappy’s Old-Fashioned Orange Cookies. They’ve been a favorite with teachers at Highland Junior High School in Barberton ever since Principal Charles A. Seese served them at a faculty gathering.
Here’s his recipe: Mix together 2 cups sugar, 1 cup butter and 3 eggs. To this add 1 cup sour milk (or buttermilk) mixed with 1 teaspoon soda. After mixing well add the juice and grated rind of 2 oranges. Mix thoroughly. Add gradually 4 1/4 cups sifted flour and 1 teaspoon baking powder. Drop by teaspoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees until the edges of the cookies are a delicate brown. Frost with icing made by blending 1 pound powdered sugar, 2 teaspoons butter and the juice and rind of 1 orange. Makes 6 dozen.
