Full story: Star-Gazette

SOUTH CORNING - When the news broke earlier this month that the Corning Food Mart was closing, many area residents had the same reaction - what about Drumm's sugar cookies? Of course, people are sorry ...

I'm not sure how my name comes up with West Palm Beach under it. I still live in Sebastian, FL.
We Hope to have the cookies online (under a different name) with the actually last name that was given our family. We might even tell the whole story surrounding how the name was changed "twice" in the Drum family !! Interesting story.
Thank you
Just like to hear more about how the last name Drumm changed. I also have the true recipe and Spencers do not taste the same. Also trying to figure out some of the Drumm Family tree.

If Terry out of the goodness of his heart deicdes to publish the Drumm Cookie recipe I would like to have it as they are the best sugar cookie that I have ever eaten. I have tried several recipes over the years but nothing has come close. I would even think about buying the recipe if it were for sale.

We'll be looking for Drums sugar cookies on line. I've been hooked since I was a little guy in the 1950s and lived in Painted Post. Maybe we Texans won't secede after all if we can still get Drumm's cookies! Michael Bierwiler / Texas writer / November Snow, The Color of Darkness, Uneven Ground

Although I am only 23 I have been eating these heavenly cookies since I was a little girl living in corning. My mom and I would walk to the food mart once a week and would always come home with at least one package of them. After leaving corning I would only have them once in awhile, but I never forgot how amazing they are. Then when I moved out of state it saddened me tgo know I could only buy them at home. Then when I heard food mart closed I thought id never get my favorite cookies again. Until visiting family I was at miniers and saw them. I now look for them as soon as I get into town.

While its kind of a nice and exciting treat to get these cookies, I would love to have them and share them with my friends down south. If anyone finds it in their heart to share the recipe, I would love you forever and might even pay for it, so please email at miztheatre@aol.com if you want to make a young girl very happy!

Drumm Sugar Cookies

4 cups sugar
1 cup butter
6 eggs
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 teaspoons fresh ground/grated nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons pure vanilla
2 cups milk
10 cups flour

Cream together sugar and butter. Add eggs, spices, vanilla, and milk. Mix. Add flour slowly. Refrigerate dough at least one hour. Roll on a floured board about 1/4-inch thick and cut with a 3-inch cookie cutter (I use round). Sprinkle with raw sugar, if you like. Bake on greased cookie sheet (or use parchment paper) at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool. They get their distinct flavor after about an hour (it is not there when the cookies are hot)

Thanks so much for the recipe. I loved those cookies as a kid and into adulthood in Corning. Now living in Arkansas, I hope to recreate those cookies. Thanks again
