Chocolate Cookies Recipe
Beat to a cream ½ a cupful of butter and one tablespoonful of lard. Gradually beat into this one cupful of sugar; then add one-fourth of a teaspoonful of salt, one teaspoonful of cinnamon, and two ounces of chocolate, melted. Now add one well-beaten egg, and ½ a teaspoonful of soda dissolved in two tablespoonfuls of milk. Stir in about two cupfuls and a ½ of flour. Roll thin, and, cutting in round cakes, bake in a rather quick oven. The secret of making the best chocolate cookies is the use of as little flour as will suffice.
