“Made for my son's school where they devote a week every year to "Old-Fashioned School". They go to an authentic one-room schoolhouse, wear period clothes, write on slates, read out of McGuffey Readers, play with old-timey toys, etc. I got this recipe from the Texas Hill Country website: http://texfiles.com/pioneercooking/index.htm . "Written on odd scraps of paper, old envelopes and the backs of cancelled checks, these recipes were discovered in an old kitchen cabinet purchased at a garage sale. The recipes, dating from the late 1800s to early 1900s, were used by the pioneers...." The original is as simple as this: Lemon Drops. One cup granulated sugar, 2 ounces or 1 tablespoonful butter, 1/2 cup sweet milk, 2 cups flour, 2 eggs, a pinch of salt; flavor with lemon and drop on buttered pan. Below is how I did it. They are kind of cake-like.”
