Might be an old depression time recipe...when caster oil might have been more prominent in the home than corn or vegetable oil...just a guess!

Interesting just the same!

You just might be right!! I do know if you ate to many you were sitting in the bathroom for awhile but back then i think caster oil was a cure all for everything..sugarcookie1

castor oil is great stuff. works really well topically to soothe cramps and joint aches also. looks like a great recipe!

Lol from the thread title, I thought we finally had a food to give Mcdonalds a run for their money!

70 year old cookies!!

Interesting however, that one of the most deadly toxins, ricin, comes from the same plant as the oil. Funny how humans can turn something deadly into a food
