    The Cook Not Mad; or Rational Cookery
    Published by James Macfarlane, Kingston, U.C., 1831

I found this recipe through an article in the Kingston Whig Standard which detailed the controversy surrounding The Cook Not Mad, and whether it was an American who plagerized a Canadian, or vis-a-versa. The two volumes published at the same time. The unique flavour and truely amazing longevity (more than 3 months when simply stored in a tin, forever in a freezer) have made these a favourite. There were years, when I baked several gross for the staff of St. Patrick's High School, where I volunteered, for Christmas.
