2 3/4 C. flour
2 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
2/3 C. shortening
2 1/4 C. brown sugar
1 C. nutmeats (broken)
1 pkg. semi-sweet chocolate morsels OR 4 oz. coconut, shredded OR both. 🙂
Mix and sift flour, baking powder and salt. Melt shortening and add brown sugar. Stir until well mixed. Allow to cool slightly. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add dry ingredients, then nutmeats and chocolate or coconut. Pour into a greased pan about 10 1/2×15 1/2×3/4 inches. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes at 350*. When almost cool, cut into 2×2 inch squares.
You can tell it’s old by some of the terminology. “Nutmeats”?? “Morsels”?? “Shortening”?? ( Please use butter). Even the size of the pan–does that still exist??
