1920s Good Southern Cookie Recipe

Here's a recipe for 'Good Southern Cookies' from 1923

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup sweet milk (or water)
1 tsp. grated nutmeg
2 'heaping' tsp's baking powder sifted with flour and enough flour to roll soft
*currants, raisins or shredded coconut may be added if desired

Cream butter and sugar

Add egg, milk nutmeg and baking powder (sifted with flour) to butter/sugar mixture ~ mix well

Add currants, raisins or coconut if desired ~ bake until done **I never put my oven over 350 degrees, so just keep checking until done
