Cookies boast a brown edge



Ella Krichinsky of Dundalk was searching for a recipe for plain brown-edge cookies. Diane Hubbard of Baltimore responded with a recipe that appeared in The Sun a number of years ago.

She says that her husband especially enjoyed these cookies. They're not fancy, but they are rich, buttery and just plain good. They brown beautifully on the edges and puff up some in the center. They would be terrific served with sorbet or fruit salad, or just eaten plain with a cup of tea or coffee.
