Caraway Cookies

Caraway seeds are suppose to be good anti-nausea remedies. These cookies may help with that, but they are also a good not-too-sweet cookie. The seed makes them tasty like delicious whole grain bread almost. They were a very pleasant surprise.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 egg, well beaten
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk
1.5 tbsp caraway seeds

1. In a large bowl, let butter hit room temperature and mix it well with the sugar.
2. Add egg to large bowl
3. In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt. (original recipe calls for sifting, but we didn't and they cookies were still pretty fluffy)
4. Add dry ingredients to large bowl of butter mixture with milk.
5. Then mix caraway seeds in.
6. If the batter is particularly liquidy, place it in the fridge for a few minutes (5-10) to solidify.
7. Preheat oven to 380-390 degrees. Grease 2 baking sheets with butter
8. Drop spoonfuls (1 tbsp) of batter onto baking sheets.
9. Bake 12-15 minutes until the edges are a little brown and top is golden.

The original recipe has no author, but these unique cookies were outstanding.
