This a very old recipe, I remember eating when I was a young child at my Aunt Hattie's famous pantry cookie jar. Everything always tasted so good from her pantry! Did you know that is these old recipes the bakers did not pack the brown sugar in the cup -just spooned it in in cup or used their hand to toss it in the bowl?
