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.
For some reason, men always seem to go gah-gah over these. :) They are very easy to make, and it is a great way to use up the end of the corn flakes. I also like this recipe because it uses fewer ingredients than all the other ones I have seen.
I love butterscotch. It has such a completely different flavor than caramel. This cookie recipe is easy and the only thing you'd really have to have special is the butterscotch chips. If you're a butterscotch lover like me, a bag of those little chips always stay on the pantry shelf. It is different, tho...it has cocoa powder in it. Number of cookies depends on the size of your tablespoon!
My MIL's easy, no fail date squares...Make an extra batch of the date jam its good on its own...over bagels or toast. If your date jam is a little thick. Add a little extra water to thin it out, until it is the consistency that you like. Becareful not to make it too thin.
My mom used to make these every Christmas for us when I was growing up, and they bring back special memories for me, especially around the holidays. We have been eating these for 50 years! These are my all time FAVORITE cookies :) They make a lot of cookies, and the amount really depends on how thick you actually roll the dough, and how thin or thick you cut the cookies. The cooking time is for EACH batch of cookies, and the prep time does not include time to chill dough.
Yes, finally a cookie that really does taste just like the ones sold at the bakery! --- these taste almost similar to Pillsbury chocolate chip cookie dough (the dough that is wrapped in a tube-like shape) but this is better! The dough amount may be reduced to make about 40 (one-heaping tablespoonful) smaller cookies, be aware that baking times will need to be slightly reduced for smaller cookies--- NOTE do not double the recipe in one bowl it will not have the same texture if your going to double make two separate recipes in two bowls --- you will love these cookies!
This recipe comes from one of my all time favorite cookbooks, More Make a Mix Cookery by Karine Eliason, Nevada Harward and Madeline Westover. The recipes makes 4 "logs" that when baked yields 3 dozen wonderful cookies. These are great for gift giving and can be a real time saver around the holidays.
I got these from a co worker and she told me they tasted like Girl Scout Cookies so I tryed them. I am do have to say they taste as close to the Girl Scout cookies as you can get. Prep times includes the chilling.
I call them that because as far back as I can remember, my Grandmother made these on special occasions, or just because. And my mother always made them, too. They are just so good and really "datey" , just the way I like them.
