Boston cookies from a 1896 cookbook

Yield: 1 Serving

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Bitter
3 Eggs well beaten
2 teaspoons Hot water
½ teaspoon Salt
1 cup Chopped walnuts
1½ cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Baking soda
3¼ cup Flour
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 cup Currants or raisins

Preheat oven 350 F

Cream butter, add sugar and eggs gradually and add soda dissolved in water, and one half of flour mixed and sifted with salt and cinnamon.

Add nuts, raisins, or currants and remaining flour. Drop by spoonfuls one inch apart on buttered cookie sheet. Bake in moderate oven -350 F 15-20 min. note: I would suggest cookies are checked after 8 minutes of baking to prevent burning.
