"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

This was origanily called Ice Box Cookies as Edith didn't have any electricity out in the country when she was young. An Ice Box was all they had. They even had a lake that they kept very clean so that in the winter it would freeze and Edith's father and some of his neighbors would cut the ice up into 50 or 100 lbs blocks and store them in the Ice house. A Ice House is a building that was incelated with hay and it helped keep the ice from melting. These 50 lbs blocks they put into a ice box that would keep milk and butter cool. There were no freezers back in this time.
