Help to recreate the original 1970's guerilla cookie

Grocery stores, recipes, cook books, CSAs, farmers' markets, organic, local, processed, corporate. It's a smorgabord!

Gee, peanutbutter, I just bit on something hard that didn't belong in a guerrilla cookie.

Hi, anyone who is interested in guerrilla cookies!

I'm posting here just to bring the topic up again, hoping that more will join us in our slow-moving-yet-still-productive effort to recreate the 1960's-70s guerrilla cookie. Check out some recipes here: http://guerrillacooking.blogspot.com/

At that blog, there was a request for anyone who might have a photo of an original guerrilla cookie. Never hurts to ask, right?

As long as I'm repeating requests for wildly unlikely things, I'll also repeat my request to anyone who might have saved one of the little slips of paper that were inserted into the bag--I'm picturing a yellowed bookmark in an old undergrad textbook, maybe. Please, please share the ingredients list!

Someone young asked me the other night what Guerrilla Cookies were.

I said, "They were the communion wafers of the Sixties."

I miss Beeple Bars. I liked guerilla cookies, sure, but what I miss is Beeple Bars.

Great news! (Possibly.) The UW Alumni Association says they found an original ingredients list from an old Quercus Alba guerrilla-cookie bag. More information here: http://guerrillacooking.blogspot.com/2012/03/quercus-alba-ingredients-list-found.html

If you're in Madison on April 28, consider going to the WAA event to help me convince them to share that list!

I'll bet that if you spoke with an old schooler at Nature's Bakery, he/she would be able to tell ya what went into a guerrilla cookie.

I found guerilla cookies to be too hard and too dry. Bring back the Chani cup instead.

I asked at Nature's Bakery long ago; they never had the recipe, unfortunately.

Guerrilla cookies return for UW alumni weekend

Remember guerrilla cookies, a staple on the UW-Madison campus during those halcyon days of the late '60s and early '70s? This weekend, they will return.

Campus chefs, using a long-held family recipe searched out by Wendy Hathaway of the Wisconsin Alumni Association, are baking batches of the delight, part of the food from the past being served during Alumni Weekend starting Friday.
