Both recipes from AMISH FAMILY FAVORITES, Arthur/Tuscola, Illinois Another old, old recipe that is positively HUGE. You will probably want to halve it and you'll still have plenty of cookies. Remember, though, you will be sandwiching two cookies together to make one cookie.
Mix together brown sugar and butter, then add eggs and mix well. Mix together dry ingredients and add alternately with soda water. Drop by teaspoon on cookie sheet. Bake at 375F for 10-12 minutes, or until done.
Filling: Beat egg whites until stiff, add vanilla, milk and sugar. Cream shortening and add to mixture. Spread on cooled cookie, cover with second cookie to make sandwich. Posted to bakery-shoppe digest V1 Number 018 by Peggy Makolondra <pmakolon@...> on Apr 9, 1997
