The Original Girl Scout Scot-Tea Cookie Recipe

The original recipe for home-baked Girl Scout cookies, circa 1922:

1 c. butter

1 c. sugar

2 T. milk

2 eggs

1 t. vanilla

2 c. flour

2 t. baking powder

Sugar crystals

Cream butter and sugar. Add well-beaten eggs, then milk, flavoring, flour and baking powder. Roll thin and make cutouts (with any cookie cutter desired).
Sprinkle sugar crystals on top and bake at 350 for about 8 minutes, or until just golden-brown.

These are very close to the old Burry's Scot-Teas. Nice and tasty with a cup of tea or coffee. :-)
