This recipe came to me from my dear friend Senator Judith Zaffirini. The recipe was originally her sister Sara’s, hence the name. The Senator is quite the baker herself and has lots of great recipes you can check out on her Facebook page in the Notes section.
These delightful little cookies are light and perfect for a not too sweet treat. And no, sorry guys, no scotch is actually included in these cookies. This recipe yields a ton of cookies, I think supposedly around 100 but I may have accidentally made my cookies a little bigger and wound up somewhere around 60… Still a lot! I took these little morsels to my office and they were gobbled up in a flash. You can half the recipe if you’re baking for a smaller crowd.
Plus extra sugar and cinnamon for rolling
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
I must say this recipe was made possible by an extremely generous and kind gift from the Senator. A Kitchen Aid Mixer! Seriously, I shrieked with excitement when I received this! I feel like I’ve been promoted to new a level of baking or something. Thank you Senator Zaffirini!!
Ok, back to the recipe. You must sift the flour. I did not have a sifter, so I made due with a colander. Sift the flour before measuring then resift twice after measuring and adding the baking powder.
Flattened vs Non- Flattened.
After you flatten them all, bake for 18-20min or until a very delicate color. I would check on these after 15min because ovens vary and you don’t want to burn these little babies.
Sorry, color came out a little weird in that pic.
