Cookies (Mrs Weber)

Here’s another real mystery recipe that uses salt & eggs before all other ingredients. I’m not quite sure what to think about this because it seems like a lot of salt and a lot of eggs. What would happen to the eggs if they sat in that much salt?? I’m also taking a guess that … Continue reading
