My Thoughts On Cracker Jack Cookies:

Cracker Jacks are a big part of my childhood memories. My mother would bring me Cracker Jacks as a kid. I was always excited to get them. I was especially excited about finding the small prize in the box. Sometimes it was a lick-and-stick tattoo and other times it was a small magnifying glass. These cookies do not necessarily taste like Cracker Jacks but they will be well-liked by children. It is difficult for a child to not like any cookie. If you are a teacher these cookies will be a great treat for the kids in your class.

More Information On Cracker Jack Cookies:

It is uncertain where and when Cracker Jack cookies originated but it is rumored that the cookie dates to the 1930's. The Cracker Jack candy does have an interesting history though. The popcorn candy treat was invented by a German immigrant in 1893. It was not named Cracker Jack at first. You can read more on Cracker Jacks by visiting ThoughtCo and reading the article called Who Invented Cracker Jack, the Classic Popcorn Snack.

My Thoughts For Today:

Mulberries

We have a mulberry tree in our yard and every year the tree produces nice fruit. We are always in competition with birds and squirrels to collect the berries the tree gives. The tree was planted many years ago before we bought our home. I enjoy the taste of these berries. If they are picked when they are ripe they have a sweet taste. The berries are green at first, then red, and finally dark purple or black when fully ripe. I was thinking to see if I could successfully save the seeds from these berries and try to start a few more trees to plant on the property. One tree produces a lot of berries but several more trees would produce many more to bake with.

I will share more about my progress on this project in the future. Keep your fingers crossed that I can get the seeds to sprout. I appreciate you visiting today and I would like to know your thoughts on the Cracker Jack Cookies recipe.

Keep on cooking!
