This 1938 Butterscotch Cookies Recipe is a really close cousin to a simple brown sugar cookie. It would also be called an icebox cookie. All of the flavour comes from the brown sugar and vanilla.


Butter 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Brown sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Eggs 2
Vanilla 1/2 Teaspoon
Cream of tartar 1/2 Tablespoon
Baking soda 1/2 Tablespoon
Flour 2 3/4 Cup (44 tbs)



1. Mix in order given.

2. Roll into a log around 2" in diameter and wrap tightly in cling film. Refrigerate overnight.

3. Preheat oven to 350ºF.

4. Cut rounds approximately 1/2" thick and bake for 10-11 minutes.

5. Unused dough can be frozen and baked at a later date.


6. Serve and Enjoy!
