1934 Icebox Cookies from Van Horn

Click on the images for a closer view!
Van Horn, the Crossroads community for our own Texas Mountain Trail, has its history determined by its location.  Through time, it has always been a place travelers passed through...whether by foot, horseback, wagon, train, bicycle or automobile.  It was also an important stop on the historic highways--the Bankhead Highway and the Old Spanish Trail! 

We found this recipe from 1934 in a Van Horn Hospital Auxiliary cookbook, and wanted to share it with you!
