How Cookies (and best intentions) Crumble

This last week, the Yummish Council met to select the Second of the Yummish Saints. However, as the Yummish Center was experiencing an unpleasantly intense heatwave, the decision was made to conclude early and go out for iced coffees instead. We stand by that choice. (See lesson “Everything in Moderation, Including Moderation.”)

Therefore, in lieu of the usual, long-winded, hard-to-follow, Joseph-Campbell-wanna-be diatribe, I offer you a cookie recipe. (Especially now that the heatwave has passed and it is again reasonable to turn on the oven.)


Ingredients :
1/2 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 egg
3/4 c. buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. Salt

Mix thoroughly the butter, sugar and egg. Stir in buttermilk and vanilla. Sift together flour, soda and salt and stir in. Chill dough 1 to 2 hours. Drop rounded teaspoons about 2" apart on lightly greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with mixture of sugar and cinnamon. Bake at 400 degrees until set but not brown, about 10 minutes.
