Some night for after dinner instead of a new recipe for dessert why not try one of these depression era dessert recipes and see if you like them. During the time of Great Depression, people did not have much money and grocery items like eggs, milk and butter were hard to come by or simply unaffordable.
But even then, it didn’t mean you could skip on dessert! Yes, using materials from scratch, everything was re-used and made into another meal especially desserts. Not even stale bread went to waste!
