Tiny Tim's Tidings of Joy Cookies
(**Great recipe for teaching kids how to bake.)
- 1 (9 oz.)
- can crushed pineapple in heavy syrup (the cans got smaller, but 8 oz. is ok, can always double the recipe)
- stick butter (don't sub)
- 1 cup
- light brown sugar
- 2 cups
- 2 tsp.
- double-acting baking powder (same as we use today)
- 1/2 tsp.
- 1 (6 oz.)
- pkg. butterscotch bits (chips)
- 1/2 cup
- walnuts, chopped
- *candied cherries for decoration (maraschino, drained well)
Take the butter out of the icebox. Let it get soft. Get the oven temperature to 375 degrees. Grease the cookie sheets.
Use an "eating" teaspoon. One full teaspoon of batter makes one cookie. Dip the spoon into the batter and push the batter off onto the greased cookie sheet. These cookies spread out as they bake, so leave plenty of room around each cookie. Put a cherry in the middle of each cookie. Now they are ready for the oven. They will be done in 10 or 12 minutes. In the meantime, you can get another batch ready if you have another cookie sheet.
They look delicious! They smell delicious! Fit for a king.
