Yesterday after Deanna and I inventoried the kitchen at Mom's, Deanna took her recipe card file to look through.  She called me today and wanted to know what this weird ingredient in a cookie recipe was.  She said it was for Wheaties Cookies and was in my handwriting.  The ingredient was 'spry'.  Does anyone besides me know what that is?
