The Arizona Inn has served hundreds of visitors to Tucson since it was built by Isabella Greenway in 1930. This recipe for delicious cookies is found on page 109 of Tastes & Treasures. The cookie molds give it this distinctive shape.
A more detailed history of The Arizona Inn and AZ Congresswoman, Isabella Greenway, is documented in the book An Enterprising Woman by Kristie Miller. Miss Greenway was a long time friend of Eleanor Roosevelt corresponding with over 200 letters between them. For a good story of early Arizona, pick up this book.
