The Most Passive-Aggressive Cookie Recipe Ever

I found this recipe in "Honeybelles Recipes Vol II". The Honeybelles were "a charitable organization of Honeywell, Inc." The book has no date, but it looks to be from the late 60s or early 70s. The recipe was submitted by Ethel Fagerstrom. A Google search yields the information that a Miss Ethel Fagerstrom wore a gown of peach colored chiffon with flounced skirt and carried a bouquet of sweet peas and talisman roses when she served as bridesmaid to Elvira J. Thompson in 1930 in Humbird Wisconsin. It could be the same woman.

The recipe exactly as printed:

Aggression Cookies
3 C. brown sugar
3 C. butter
6 C. old style oatmeal
1 Tbsp. soda
3 C. flour
Work and mix well and roll into small balls. Place on cookie sheet and press with glass. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 min.

So why are they "aggression" cookies? Because, as a careful reading yields, is does not say to press with a glass. Nope, just press with glass.

I think being forced by social pressure to be part of an organization called the "Honeybelles" took its toll on poor Miss Fagerstrom's psyche.
