Bill Cookies, and rightly they are named,

If they are gone in a jiffy no one can be blamed,

Take one cup of sugar, a half cup of lard;

Cream these together, add two eggs and beat hard,

One scant teaspoon of soda, now put in cup,

Add a mite of hot water, and now 'twill foam up;

Sift three cups of flour and place in a bowl,

Mix smoothly and swiftly, and then neatly roll;

If the dough is too soft, a little flour add,

I '11 assure better cookies your husband ne 'er had.
