Recollection cookies

This morning, I made peppermint chocolate chip cookies.  This was a recipe I loved to make with my grandmother as a child.  Then there was the year that my grandfather taught me the secret of these cookies.  Pop-pop called me over for a secret conference and said," Do you know,  they are so good because she uses last year's candy canes?"  He was right, she did.  My grandmother lived through the depression and certainly had a waste not, want not mind set.  The cookies are still good in that old fashioned way.  I always smile while I bake them.

I knew some people that had lived through it, and they seemed to have a lot of canned goods. I understand this mindset now, there are benefits to having a stocked pantry.
