Patty Cake Cookies

I am not sure why these light and easy cookies are called patty cake cookies but they are easy to make and very good.

The recipe calls for self-raising flour you can make it yourself. For each cup of all-purpose flour called for in the recipe, add 1 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. So for this recipe you would add 2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. ONLY if you don’t have self raising flour.
