Royal Chip Cookies

Mary Nell Forester


I found an old church cook book at an estate auction and this was one of the recipes in it. I love this one. It makes a large batch of cookies as many as 9 dozen depending on the size of cookie you like to make. At my house small just doesn't work! lol So hope you all enjoy this recipe. It is a keeper! Along with the recipes was this poem.

The Cookie Jar

You may talk about your vases,
just how beautiful they are.
But to me there's nothing nicer
than a well filled cookie jar.

Ginger cookies, raisin cookies,
some with walnuts, some with spice,
Orange cookies, chocolate cookies,
why, I think they all are nice.

And that cookie jar of Mothers
Stands upon the pantry shelf.
When I'm hungry she will tell me
I may go and help myself.

Yes, I've seen some handsome vases,
Brought from near or from far,
But there's nothing that is prettier,
Than a well filled cookie Jar!
