Here’s a vintage recipe from the 1930’s for an old-fashioned Valentine’s Day.
Chocolate Drop Cookies
Melt 2 squares chocolate over hot water. Cream 1 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup butter. Add the yolks of two eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 cup sour milk in which 1 level teaspoon soda has been dissolved, beat together. Add chocolate and 2 cups sifted flour and 1/2 cup nut meats. Beat until smooth. Drop in teaspoonfuls on greased tin and bake in a quick oven.
