I adopted this recipe from the Recipezaar account as I am always on the look out for make ahead desserts. This is the original introduction: "This is a recipe that has been a fave in our family. They got their name because they are so good that they are 'guaranteed to make your jeans fit tighter'. Cheesy saying, I know, but they are really good!(= Hope you enjoy them too!"
A friend of mine brought these cookies to a square dance several years ago and was nice enough to write out the recipe for me. I have no idea where she got it, but, I've made them for years and they are just so tasty.
This recipe has oatmeal, Rice Krispies and coconut. Very crispy and yummy. I clipped it from a Southern Living magazine years ago. It's requested time and again at my house. The key to this recipe is definitely the rice krispies. Kellogs (a Michigan based co) introduced these in 1904. This recipe represents the Midwestern U.S.
Most summers I enjoy going strawberry picking at a "U Pick". The Blue Diamond Berry Farm is one of these U-Picks and they hand out recipes you can make with strawberries. This is one of these recipes which is a nice variation from the regular matrimonial cake made with dates.
I received this at my annual Christmas bake exchange. This treat didn't last long and so I asked for the recipe so I could make another batch myself. This square is quite rich so you can cut it into small pieces. Place into mini muffin cup papers for an extra special touch
