A marker is a signal that the dog has done something correctly. The treat is the reward for doing so.
Timing is everything with this method so the dog does not misinterpret what it is you want or expect.
I used a clicker, praise, and treats to teach recall to Lisl.
I had her on a 30' training lead when teaching her this.
