I have no idea how long shed had it or whereshe got it. I am assuming she copied it down from a local radio program that was popular in ourrural community when I was a child. It was a program where neighbors shared recipes, items theywanted to give away, sell, etc. All we have here is a list of the ingredients. There are noinstructions for making.1 1/2 stick butter3 T. cocoa1/2 t. vanilla1 T. water2 cup oats3/4 cup sugarIt amazes me the number of recipes I come across in old files that only list ingredients. I guess thecooks from our past did so much cooking and baking that it all just came naturally to them.GUM DROP COOKIESThis is an old recipe that was served at club meetings in Southern Indiana where I was born andraised. Back in the day when ladies attended "club" meetings for everything from sewing to playingbridge, they took refreshments. These were popular cookies at those meetings.2 cups brown sugar3 eggs3 cups flour1 cup broken nut meats1 tsp. vanilla1 cup butter or shortening1 tsp. soda1 tsp. cream of tartar1 cup gum drops, diced
