Notes

They’re made from a recipe that is over 100 years old - the pride of one man, Uncle Joe, as he was known to the people of Marblehead, Mass. Since he lived on the edge of a frog pond, the cookies soon became known as Joe Froggers.

I have that book... at least the inspiration was from one of the Greats!

too tired to check if the ingrediants are the same but Maida Heater has a cookie called Joe Frogger in one her her cookbooks.
