Bakin' Cookies

Greetings Friends~ ~ ~
Saw some sweet little cookies at the store today and realized I haden't baked cookies since Christmas. . . and it's Easter. I am way overdue.

So, ta da! My favorite soft cookie recipe. Here in Pennsylvania Dutch Country we call them Lepp Cakes because they are like tiny cakes and not really cookies. Not a clue what Lepp means? Anyone?!
As I was baking I realized that you might like to see my very special measuring spoon set. It's ceramic and shaped like cherries. Aren't they the cutest. I keep them hanging by the stove on the bottom edge of the cabinet. I purchased them years ago at a little gift shop.

Henry's Lepp Cakes

1- 1/2 c. Sugar
1/2 c. Butter
2 Eggs
1 c. Sour Cream
1 tsp. Vanilla
2-1/2 c. Flour
1/2 tsp. EACH Salt, Baking Powder, Baking Soda

You know the drill. Mix it all up then drop by small rounded teaspoonfulls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake @ 350* till done, when touched on top springs back.

When cool, ice with your favorite icing. Have fun!~ ~Ahrisha~ ~

Hi Ahrisha,

I thought maybe you did a tablescape with your new dishes today, so I came for a visit.

I've been busy sewing for one of my granddaughter's bedrooms, so I didn't have the time to do a taplescape this week. But I will do one soon with my new dishes. ;)


I copied the cookie recipe and will try making them soon.

Good morning Ahrisha!
Oh these cookies look scrumptious! But I must say, if you don't need those little cherry measureing spoons - I do! They are so cute!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

These looks great! I have a pan that has 6 shallow heart shapes. I think this might be a neat recipe to try in that. Thanks for sharing your favorites.

have been looking for a white lepp cookie recipe for a friend! Thanks! They are called leb- or lepp from lieb, love. Perhaps they were used in Communion in the old days? Even without glaze they are tender IF you keep them covered! Otherwise, they go great dipped in coffee (move fast!).
