Big Wheel Cookies

This recipe is a classic I got from my Grandmother. She used to make these cookies for me all the time when I was a kid. There were many times when these were a real life safer!

Big Wheel Cookies
4 cups Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Baking Soda
½ tsp Salt
¾ cup Plain Malted Milk Powder
1 cup Oleo
2 cups Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1/3 cup Sour Cream
2 tsp Vanilla
1 cup chopped Walnuts (if preffered – I leave them out)

Sift all the dry ingrediants together in a large bowl. In another bowl, cream the oleo, and add 2 cups brown sugar. Add the eggs, beating well till everything is incorporated. Add ½ the dry ingrediants, mix well. Add 1/3 cup sour cream, 2 tsp vanilla. Mix this all together, then add the remaining dry ingredients.

Add a cup of nuts if desired (I don’t)

Chill 4 hrs.

Roll half of the dough out on well floured surface till ¼ inch thick. Cut into 5 inch circles with coffee can lid or whatever else ya have.

Bake @ 375 degrees on greased sheets until light brown. Cool the cookies for 2 minutes on the sheet, then carefully remove them to a cooling rack and cool completely. Once cooled, frost them up!

¼ cup oleo, ¼ cup undilluted evaoprated milk, ad half cup brown sugar. Heat in a small pot.  Stir till sugar is disolved. Remove from heat, add 1/3 cup malted milk powder, ½ tsp vanilla, 2 ½ - 3 cups powdered sugar, till spreadable.

Decorate with 5 almond slices in a flower design, with a chocolate hersheys in the middle!
Makes about 18 cookies.
