    “Skidaddle Ridge, New Brunswick, came by its name because it was a hideout
    for draft dodgers. The “Skidaddlers were Democrats who, not in sympathy
    with the Republican Party during the Civil War; “skidaddled” out of the
    country. Most of them returned home after the war, but many stayed to
    settle in New Brunswick and Southern Ontario.

    These cookies are frequently packed in the lunch boxes carried by hunters
    in this region.”

    Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Cream together the butter,
    brown sugar and vanilla. Beat in the egg and fruit cocktail. Stir in the
    dry ingredients and add the walnuts. Drop batter from a teaspoon about 2
    inches about on a greased baking sheet. Bake in 350 oven for 10 to 12
    minutes, or until golden brown.
