Lottie Moon Cookies

As a part of our celebration of the Chinese New Year, we are having a chinese feast and we are making as a treat some Lottie Moon Cookies.

Lottie Moon’s Sugar Cookies

When Lottie Moon first arrived in China as a missionary, many of the Chinese children were afraid of her. So Lottie made the children cookies to help them trust her. At first, the children would not eat the cookies. They thought the cookies would poison them!

Finally, the children could not resist. They discovered that the cookies were not poison after all—they were delicious! Soon the children wanted Lottie to be their friend. They began calling Lottie “the cookie lady.”

(makes two dozen)
2 cups flour
½ cup butter softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 Tbs cream
Preheat oven to 425. Beat together the butter and sugar. Add the egg and mix well. Add the flour and cream. Make round shapes and place them on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes.
