This recipe is the last of 3 cookie recipes printed in a newspaper column written by Betty Harvey, date unknown. I’d guess this was printed in the 1940’s or 1950’s based on the picture of Betty and information on the back of the clipping (see first recipe here: Raisin Cookies Recipe). Recipe is typed below along with a scanned copy for archives.
