I posted this recipe for your reading enjoyment. This is an old Depression Era recipe for Quackers. We have no idea why it is called that. They made cookies a lot different back then than we do today. So, I wanted to try the recipe this morning and see what Quackers looked like as I have never sampled one. I took the picture, too. The cookies are a lot sweeter and a lot heavier, yet tasty, and the house smells like heaven when they are baking! Enjoy!
