Spokane Cookies

My colleague and Slice writer Paul Turner shared some mail he received from a reader.

The reader said she is a "thrift store cookbook seeker" and found a recipe for Spokane Cookies in a book that she picked up on a trip with her daughter.

She copied and sent the page from a church cookbook compiled by the Woman's Society of Christian Service at the Ninth Street Methodist Church in Three Rivers, Mich.

"I wonder how many cooks in Spokane will be baking 'Spokane Cookies' for their friends," she wrote in her note, which landed on my desk before the holidays.

I haven't come across a similar recipe searching the Dorothy Dean archive over the years. A quick web search didn't turn up any similar "Spokane Cookies."

It makes me wonder if it was a recipe shared between friends and family, or if it is a reference to something other than this area.

Have you ever come across Spokane Cookies? What would you consider a Spokane cookie?
