GRANDMA'S ICE BOX COOKIES

A recipe from an old church cookbook. Do you remember when we had iceboxes instead of refrigerators? I loved going to the icehouse and watching them lift large blocks of ice with the big hooks.

1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup shortening
2 eggs
4 cups flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 cup nuts

Combine the ingredients and make into two rolls. Wrap and place in the refrigerator until chilled. Slice thin and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees until light brown.
