Hellooooo Milllicent! That's what my Grandma Millicent used to say when she'd be talking to someone and they didn't respond. It is pretty cute that she'd say that and it still makes me smile today (25 years after I first remembered her doing it).
This weekend I pulled out one of the most interesting titles in my Grandmother's recipe box: Bacon Grease Cookies. One of my dear readers left me a comment last week, encouraging me to make these… so here we go.
Bacon Grease Cookies
Ingredients: 1 cup fat (or Crisco), 2 cups of sugar, 2 eggs, 2 1/2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon soda, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 cups of oatmeal, 1 cup of raisins, 1/2 cup of walnuts, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon allspice, 1 teapoon nutmeg, 1 teaspoon cloves and "enough milk to mix"– I used 1/2 cup of milk.
Mix ingedients together, form into balls and bake for 20 mins at 375. Makes 4 dozen cookies.
I had really wanted to make these with bacon grease but I just couldn't bring myself to make enough bacon to get a cup of fat. Crisco worked fine.
I hope you all have a "sweet" day!
