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
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~ ~
