I received the recipe for chocolate drop cookies
in 1962 from a neighbor. She had taken the recipe from the 1961 Betty Crocker
Cookbook but had substituted 1/2 cup baking cocoa for the 2 sq. unsweetened
chocolate. I've made them many times over the years.

Chocolate Drop Cookies
1/2 cup shortening ( part butter or margarine)
1 cup sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup sour milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon soda
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 cup chopped nuts, if desired.
Mix shortening, sugar, and egg thoroughly. Stir in sour milk and vanilla.
Blend flour, salt, soda, and cocoa and stir in. Stir in nuts, if desired.
Chill at least one hour. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls
about 2" apart on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until no
imprint remains when touched lightly with finger. Frost cooled cookies, if
desired. Makes about 3 1/2 dozen . Eleanor J Stump ..Sheldon, IA
