Miriam Trotter, of Baltimore, was looking for a recipe for what she called sugar cakes.
She said her husband's grandmother used to make these soft, thick cookies that were not overly sweet. She said that the ingredients were flour, sugar, butter, sour cream and baking soda.
Trish Koza, of Iowa City, Iowa, thought she just might have the recipe that Trotter was searching for. She said that her mother-in-law made these soft sugar cookies for years.
Patricia O'Neill, of Granger, Ind., wrote to say that when she was a little girl, age 8 or 9, she had the pleasure of eating a rolled sponge cake filled with strawberry-flavored whipped cream. She said she has tried to reproduce the cake but failed miserably.
She was hoping a reader would have a foolproof recipe for a filled sponge cake they could share with her.
