Lottie Moon Christmas Cookies

Lottie Moon made these cookies for the children who visited her at the house of “the Little Cross Roads” in Teng Chow, China. As she did not have self-rising flour, the recipe has been altered slightly over the years.

3 c sugar
1 c butter or margarine
3 eggs, well beaten
1 tsp vanilla
8 c self rising flour
½ Tbsp baking soda
1 c Sour milk (Sweet milk with 1 tsp lemon juice)

Cream butter/margarine and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Add flavoring. Sift together flour and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture alternately with sour milk. Roll and cut cookies in desired shape. Bake at 350 degrees until slightly brown. Yield 150 large cookies.
