This is an old-fashioned cookie with a butterscotch flavor. Another recipe to try for your family.

Brittle Brown Sugar Cookies

1/2 lb. butter
2 cups granulated sugar
6 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons cinnamon
3 eggs
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon soda dissolved in 1 tablespoon water
juice 1/2 lemon
1 cup ground pecans

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, blend and beat until light. Add flour sifted with baking powder, soda dissolved in water, and all other ingredients. Set on ice 2 hours before rolling thin and cutting into shapes. Bake in a hot oven (400 degrees). Dough cab be rolled into 2 loaves, wrapped in wax paper or foil, and kept on ice for days without spoiling; and cookies can be sliced very thin and baked when needed.
