Antique Nut Cracker

Everyday Crackers Used in Walnut Marguerites

Ask the men and boys how they like their cookies, and ten to one they'll say, "Give us the kind that has more than one bite to it." To be sure, the modern cookie can be stretched to the old-fashioned dimensions that were in vogue before the invention of such modern devices as the cookie press, and the automatic refrigerator which made "ice box" cookies so popular. But when it comes to flavor can you remember grandmother's Rocks and Hermits (see recipes below) and how they improved with age Long a favorite for between-meal-snacks, cookies can be a real boon right now when the family food budget for desserts may not stretch quite as far as i t did. A dish of fruit and a good homemade cookie is a delightful finish to most any meal. And if made with fruit and nuts, in the manner of the old - fashioned kinds referred to above, they will provide a lot of nourishment too.

Simply by keeping the cookie jar plentifully filled at all times, the homemaker never need be at a loss for what to serve for dessert. Even so, there's always the chance that you might run out of cookies just when you need them most. What to do?

In such an emergency take a box of butter, soda or graham crackers from your shelf and top them quickly with a. frosting or meringue base filled with broken nut kernels. Brown them in the oven and there's that dessert cookie in a hurry. This, incidentally, is a good way to make use of those limp crackers at the end of the box. The oven will freshen them while the topping is browning.
