Family Cook Book

I have been working on a family cook book. There are so many meals and treats that my family has enjoyed over the years, I decided to write down as many as I could. I am looking forward to passing this collection on to my children when they are grown. I think this would be a perfect addition to a hope chest!

What are your family recipes? Is there a special place you keep them so they can be enjoyed by generations to come?
My grandmother always had something wonderful to share when I was at her home, and I would love nothing more than to provide that same loving welcome to my family.

My mother's favorite cookies, and my (favorite) Aunt's favorite side dish:

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose or unbleached flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
