Florence Flader's Spud Cookies


I dedicate this post to Monica Kass Rogers, Evanston's resident reviver of vintage recipes...and to Elita Lerner and any other "kids" who grew up in Evanston who had Florence Flader as their teacher.

While searching Mildred Swarthout's file box for Christmas cookie recipes, this one intrigued me.

Both their families in the plumbing business in Evanston, Florence and my grandmother Mildred were long-time friends.


  1. I love this. Looks like something I would try to make after school in the 60s. And I too love Monica's site. Merry Christmas, Karen. -Jamie O'Reilly

  2. This is a great memory for me too Karen, Thanks:)

  3. Thank you Karen! Mildred Swarthout's file box sounds like a treasure trove :) You'll have to give us a Florence Flader story to go with the fun recipe. Cheers!

  4. Cheers and Merry Christmas to you too, Jamie and Monica. You're welcome, Unknown.
