Saturday, February 29, 1936

Cloudy and dull all day and cold-
Made a layer cake with lemon filling and oatflake cookies*, mopped and done usual Saturday work
Done all the chores- took bath this eve
Mother has been fine all day-

Butterscotch oatmeal cookies

*First of all, 1936 was a leap year, hence me posting 2 diary entries today. Secondly, I made Butterscotch Oatmeal cookies the other day! I figured I would combine Irene's love of 2 things into one. Just follow the recipe from January 21, 1936 post, but substitute 1 c. of butterscotch morsels for the cherries & nuts.


  1. I used to make cookies like this with my grandmother when I was a kid! They were gorgeous. Like all her recipes, though, they never taste quite as awesome when I make them now! I obviously just suck at baking!

    1. I'm sure you are not that bad at baking. :)


Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
