Behold…the half moon cookie. Most of you probably have never heard of such a thing. If you are from Central NY, you might have. I have been away from Syracuse for far too long. I was craving something from back home. This hit the spot!
You will LOVE these. It’s more like a cake than a cookie. They are very easy to make and easier to eat ;)
Half Moon Cookie
1.5 C Sugar
3/4 C vegetable shortening
2 large eggs
3 C flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 C buttermilk
Cream together the sugar, shortening and eggs. Set aside.
Mix the flower and baking power together and set aside.
Mix the baking soda and buttermilk. Alternate flour and buttermilk while stirring into creamed mixture.
Drop by 1/4 cups onto a greased cookie sheet forming circles.
Bake at 350 for 8-10 mins (when the edges are golden, they are done).
Flip over when cool and frost half with white frosting the other half with chocolate.
Try not to eat them all in one sitting. Ghetto pictures courtesy of my crap camera.
