White Star Cookies

From Joan's Grandma Eberle

This is also a recipe from my Grandma Eberle. Grandma and Aunt Mar lived in the house they had been born in. My Grandmother was born in 1891 and Aunt Mar a few years before that. The house had been built for their mother as a wedding present. It was (is) on McCausland Avenue on the far west side of the city of St. Louis. Grandma liked to say that she grew up in the country. That was a relatively true statement. When she was young, their’s was the only house on a dirt road. As adolescents they would walk to the top of the street to the newly built Forest Park to attend the St. Louis World’s Fair.
