Snickerdoodles In A Cachepot?

I thought I'd make some cookies for the family and wanted to share them with you. Of course, you have to make them. Does anyone know what this made in England container is? The top and bottom part are one piece and all it says on the bottom is Made in England. There is no hole at the bottom so I don't think it is for a plant. I simply don't know what it is. I do know the cookies are crisp and crinkly on the outside and moist and chewy on the inside. Very easy.

1 cup butter - 11/2 cups sugar - 2 eggs - 1 tsp. vanilla - 22/3 cups unsifted flour - 1/2 tsp. soda - 1/4 tsp. salt - 2 TBS. sugar - 2 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour, soda and salt. Shape dough into balls and roll into the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 - 10 minutes.
Your house will smell wonderful. Enjoy.


  1. Why it is a "ye olde cookie holder" of course, you silly goose!
    Thank you for your kind words and thoughts.
