"SKIDADDLE COOKIES" Canada recipe,w/fruit cocktail

Nancy J. Patrykus


I was visiting my Canadian relatives and was served these delicious cookies.
Naturally I asked for the recipe ! And learned the history behind them.
They are called "SKIDADDLE" for Skidaddle Ridge, Canada, because it was a hideout for draft dodgers during the American Civil War. You can learn more by goggling the name.
For what ever reason they are a good cookie, with walnuts and fruit cocktail. A great tasty combination, you might want to try.
