Butterscotch Cookies (cookie press)

From my grandma. Crisp and not too sweet. Nice complement to fussy Christmas cookies.

Dough must be chilled for at least a few hours before shaping.

Butterscotch Cookies (cookie press)
Thin crisp cookies that aren't too sweet.
  • 3/4 cups shortening
  • 2 eggs (slightly beaten)
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Cream together shortening, eggs, and sugar.
  2. Mix in remaining ingredients.
  3. Chill for several hours or overnight.
  4. Use a cookie press to make flat, corrugated strips on a greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet. Cut strips about 2" long.
  5. Bake at 375° for 8 – 12 minutes, until light brown.
  6. Let cool on pan for a few minutes. Not too long or they will become one with the pan or paper.
