One word: Delicious! When we were kids, Grandma called these Torn Pants! We couldn't wait for them to be done and would be waiting at the stove for them. Our faces were white with powdered sugar....Those were the days and they can be again!

I used to make these cookies about 40 years ago. The recipe I had was called: Baltimore Wonders. I lost the recipe a long time ago. I had searched the web for it some time ago without luck. I am glad to find the recipe again. They are so good.
