Recipe for "Babe Ruth Cookies."
1 1/3 c flour
1/2 tea salt
3/4 c white sugar
1/2 tea soda
1/2 tea vanilla
1/2 c butter
2 - 5 cent bars, cut (I think they are probably referring to Baby Ruth candy bars)
Cream short (no mention of shortening above?) and sugar, beat in egg and other ingredients. Chill and bake 10-12 minutes at 375
