Vintage cookie recipes

Does anyone have suggestions for American cookie recipes that wouldn't be out of place in the 1920s? Bonus points if they're known to be favourites with children. My character is sitting in Fairbanks, Alaska and writing her aunt in the Mid-West to ask for recipes (say, between 1925 and 1928), but while I've found collections on the Internet, actual recipes are harder to come by. All I've managed to learn is that it's too early for tollhouse and chocolate chip cookies. As a food history buff and cookie monster I'd love it if I could make something more of it than just the old oatmeal and raisin cookie.

Google searches so far include the following search terms: 1920s, cookies, recipes, recipe collections, baking, chocolate chip cookies.
