Evaluates on my system

$Version

"4.1 for Power Macintosh (November 2, 2000)"

(FourierTransform[Cos[a t+b]*Cos[c t+d],t,f] /. {b -> 0, d -> 0})== 
  FourierTransform[Cos[a t]*Cos[c t],t,f]

True

You might try using TrigReduce prior to transforming

Factor[FourierTransform[TrigReduce[Cos[a t] Cos[c t]],t,f]]

(1/2)*Sqrt[Pi/2]*(DiracDelta[a - c - f] + 
   DiracDelta[a + c - f] + DiracDelta[a - c + f] + 
   DiracDelta[a + c + f])
