Old Fashioned Washboard Cookies

So since we were out of goodies in our house i thought about making some cookies.  Well it is kinda hard to make cookies without chocolate chips but then i remembered this recipe. Sooo simple yet sooo good =)


  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon hot water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • sugar
  • Directions

    1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter, brown sugar and egg. Stir together baking soda, water and vanilla; add to creamed mixture. Add flour and mix well. Shape into walnut-sized balls. Place on greased baking sheets; flatten with a fork that has been dipped in water. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 325 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool on waxed paper.
