Sour Milk Cookies



  • 3/4 cup Butter

  • 1 1/2 cups Sugar

  • 2 Eggs

  • 3 1/2 cups Flour

  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder

  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg

  • 1/4 tsp Cloves



This recipe helped to use up sour milk which everyone had around at the time. Now, of course, our milk is so pasteurized and homogenized that sour milk is harder to come by. you may need to add a tsp of vinegar to the 3/4 cup of milk and let it sit overnight.



Mix together in a bowl the butter, sugar and the 2 well beaten eggs. Put all the other ingredients into a bowl and slowly mix in the creamed mixture of butter, sugar and eggs. alternately with 3/4 of a cup sour milk containing 1 tsp of baking soda.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes on a greased cookie sheet.
