After much hard work, the Spirit staff tracked down the Quest cookie recipe. As a parting gift to the class of 2020, the Quest staff is sharing the recipe for all to enjoy. Co-Editor-in-Chief Bella Druckman ‘20 tried the recipe upon receiving it and sadly discovered it lacked the signature Quest taste. However, they are still delicious. Now everyone can enjoy Quest cookies all the time!
