The Monday Recipe Blog

Hello, and happy Monday to you!  Another Lois Elaine recipe is primed and ready to go, just for you....

This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.

Even the cute name for these chocolate cookies is great - Try these, you'll like them!

1 c. sugar
3/4 c. soft butter
1 egg
1/4 c. corn syrup
2 envelopes Nestle Choco-Bake (substitute powdered chocolate)
1 3/4 c. sifted flour
2 t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. salt

Combine in bowl the sugar, butter and egg.  Beat till creamy. Stir in corn syrup and powdered chocolate.  Stir in flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
