Wartime, Cookies & Mom

In honor of Mother's Day, something sweet: WWII Caramel Refrigerator Cookies. These were made with brown sugar (the white variety was rationed, of course). But you didn't come for a history lesson - you came for cookies. The recipe is here, collected by Laura Flowers, an Idaho photographer. We're lucky she likes sharing her photos and observations with us. Thanks, Laura. We'll be posting more recipes. What sort would you like to see? Leave your comments below.

  1. Love your blog! Brings back a lot of what my mother used to tell me. In my possession is a cookbook from the Hilo, HI, Woman's Club from 1943, which my aunt got when she and her husband, a Navy officer, were in Hawaii during the war. It's fascinating.
