Christmas Cookies

Last summer, Aunt Kathleen loaned me my Grandma Fabiano’s recipes. Grandma would write recipes on scraps of paper or the backs of envelopes–whatever was handy. This is one of those recipes. I don’t remember Grandma making these cookies, but I would sure like to try them. Just in case you can’t make out the ingredients, here is the recipe:

2 Pounds brown sugar
2 pounds lard
1 pound black walnuts
4 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon clove
1 box seedless raisins
1 box currants
1 quart sour cream — or sour buttermilk
1 corn syrup — small can
1 teaspoon allspice
3 egg
15 cups flour

Chill for 2 or 3 days
Bake 350 degrees

As you can see, the recipe calls for 15 cups of flour. I think I will quarter the recipe, when I try it.
