Why I Love This Recipe

I found this in the 2004 TOH Best Holiday Recipes.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 Tbsp hot water
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1-3/4 cups flour
Sugar to dust


Cream butter, brown sugar, and egg in a mixing bowl. Add water and vanilla. Mix together rest of ingredients and add to the creamed mixture. Shape into walnut-sized balls and place on greased baking sheets. Flatten with a fork dipped in water and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 325 for 15-20 minutes. Makes 3-1/2 dozen.

(Using a fork didn't work for me, I used the bottom of a small juice glass dipped in water.)
