This wonderful recipe was in circulation when I was a kid in the 70s. Years later, a woman brought a tray of these to the office, which I instantly recognized as THOSE COOKIES FROM MY CHILDHOOD, and she refused to give me the recipe (said it was her babysitter's secret recipe)! I searched online (tried several recipes) and asked my friends and family off and on if they'd heard of it, for 10 years. I finally JUST found this online! They are SO GOOD! Bake them for your friends and family and share the recipe with the WORLD! Note, the number of cookies you get will vary - depending on how big you roll the balls.
This is a spin-off of the original no-bake cookie. Using just peanut butter (crunchy or creamy works) and no chocolate. This makes a huge batch of smaller drop cookies, but I use a big icecream scoop and you get approximately 25 jumbo's.
These cookies will make your mouth sing! If you love the flavor thar toasted nuts have, you will love these cookies. They are not a doctored up oatmeal cookie, but like a really good energy bar/cookie. These have been adapted from a bakery called "Tutti's" in Montecito, CA.
These are very similar to the typical merinque type cookie but w/an added surprise. To make it truly a surprise (as suggested by 2Bleu) try using white-chocochips. :-) (After reading reviews, I have altered the ingredient list).
Just in time for the holidays, or anytime. I'm not sure you can get the white star chocolate candy anymore, but I use the white chocolate bark they sell in the 1 pound blocks with equal success. (16 oz.) You will then need to up the amount of other ingredients used accordingly. Not sure on the serving amount.
My boys came home from a bachelor party w/this recipe and said "mom you just have to make these". Needless to say they are decadent. I was surprised they'd be served at that type of party, but it worked. Delish!
This recipe is from a Gooseberry Patch cookbook. They are absolutely wonderful. I actually use a little less cocoa in the frosting than it calls for, but feel free to adjust according to how chocolaty you like it.
