How to Make Ethel's Nice Tomato Cookies -- dated October 1926
- 1Cream softened butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla and beat until fluffy. Mix baking powder with flour and add to other ingredients. Beat until blended. Chill until dough is firm. Form chilled dough into a ball and knead a few times until smooth. Divide into four sections. Refrigerate two. Roll other two out into same sized rectangles (onto floured waxed paper) about 1/4 inch thick. Spread half of the tomato filling on one rectangle, topping with the other. Repeat with remainder of dough. Flip the dough onto a greased baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees until lightly browned, about 20-25 minutes. Cut into squares when cooled.
