2 cups butter
2 ¼ cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 cup milk
7 ¾ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp lemon flavor
½ tsp nutmeg
1 Tbsp honey
Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs,
then milk. Scrape the sides of the bowl often. Stir in
remaining ingredients. Dough will be soft and sticky.
Place dough on well floured pastry cloth or workspace.
Knead in just enough flour to make dough workable.
Dough will be very soft. It is best to knead with a rolling
motion so you have a smooth surface and you will not
get cracks on the tops of cookies.
Gently roll out to 3/8 inch thick. Bake at 325 degrees for
10-12 min. Makes about 4 dozen.
