Cuckoo Cookies Recipe

Recently, I had a request for the Cuckoo Cookies recipe mentioned in Chapter 3 of A Strange Spring. Here it is! It is too late to make them for Christmas. However, they might taste good with hot chocolate or tea on a snowy January day.

Cuckoo Cookies


1 ¾ cups flour

1 cup sugar

½ tsp. salt

1 egg

½ tsp. soda

¼ cup milk

½ cup cocoa

1 tsp. vanilla

½ cup shortening

Mix shortening, sugar and egg. Then mix dry ingredients with milk. Drop by spoon on greased cookie sheet.

Bake 8 minutes at 350 degrees. Put a marshmallow, cut side down, on top of each cookie. Bake 2 minutes more. Cool and frost.


2 cups powdered sugar

4 Tbsp. cocoa

3 tsp. vanilla

Milk as needed

Makes about 24 cookies.
