100 cookies?

From St. Walter’s Church in Roselle, IL: Kitchen Kookery. This fascinating community cookbook (likely from the early 70′s) has tons of desserts and a few main dishes. How many community cookbooks do you have in your collection? I was interested in this one especially as the church is not too far from my home. My sons were baptized there. I don’t know that I want to make a recipe with 200 cookies, though!

Old Fashioned Powdered Sugar Oatmeal Cookies

1 lb. butter
