Desert Exposure - About the Cover


Miriam Hill, artist and owner of Sterling Fine Art, 306 N. Bullard, Silver City, lovingly shared Grandma Judy’s oatmeal chocolate chip cookies in her artwork. She also happened to share the recipe on paper:

Cream 1 cup butter, ¾ cups sugar and 4/4 cups brown sugar.

Add 2 eggs; 1 tsp baking soda dissolved in 1 tablespoon hot water; 1 tsp salt; 1 tsp vanilla; ¼ tsp cream of tartar; and 1 ¾ sups flour.

Mix in 2 cups oatmeal and 1 pkg chocolate chops. Drop on cookie sheet and shape slightly. Bake at 365 degrees F. Sometimes it may need a little more flour.
