Right now, I'm craving sweets. I wrote on my Facebook status that I'd love to make some brownies right about now! Or cookies. Or cupcakes. But I don't dare when I'm alone in the house for another ten days! Anyway, needless to say that the recipe that caught my eye on Recovered Recipes is one for Brown Sugar Cookies. I don't know that I've ever heard of this recipe! Can you believe it?! I sure can't. They sound like a classic, though. And the author of Recovered Recipes says that she remembers her Mom adding nutmeg to the recipe. Mmm! I may be making cookies soon after all. Heaven help me! I'd better go to the gym too! :)
Brown Sugar CookiesBon Appetit! Let me know if you try this recipe! And if I do, I'll report back :)

Cream together the eggs, sugar and shortening. Add flour, cream of tartar, soda, salt and vanilla.

PS ~ Lucius seems to be doing much better today. The little rascal even took out his IV overnight, saving us a trip to the Vet & possibly even some money! Good boy. He doesn't have much of an appetite, though, & what little he does eat just comes back up. And the poor sweetie cries a lot. I've been doing a lot of snuggling :)
