Helen's Russian Drops

Another recipe we are left in the dark about. But making cookies is not difficult  and so I will write out the directions as I think they should be written. These sound very good.

Helen's Russian Drops

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup butter or lard
3 eggs, beaten separately
1 tsp. soda in 2 tsp. milk
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 pound walnuts*
1 pound seeded raisins
pinch salt
3 cups sifted flour

Drop with spoon. Make small.
*My directions:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour, cinnamon, and salt; set aside. Cream sugar and lard. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat well after each addition. Add in milk/soda and sour cream, blend well. Beat in flour mixture. Fold in raisins and nuts. Drop by tsps. onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
*Chop walnuts before adding
*Pecans could also be used in place of the walnuts.
