Earlier this year, I added to my collection of department store tea room memorabilia by purchasing a postcard showing the Carson Pirie Scott tea room in Chicago and a 1962 cookbook by the Carson Pirie Scott Women's Club. (They are shown here, if you'd like to see them.) Over the weekend, I decided to try the book's recipe for Sandies, and I must say these were easy and delicious, a perfect teatime treat!
The other reason I wanted to make something from the Carson Pirie Scott Women's Club cookbook was that I recently came across an old piece of restaurant china bearing the store's name.
I was so very happy to add this piece to my little collection!
And if you're not into department store and/or tea room history, perhaps you can at least use a new cookie recipe?
I ate mine warm, fresh out of the oven and freshly rolled in powdered sugar. Enjoy slowly, with a nice cup of tea. That's my advice!
