READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Aunt Paula

Wow! These are outta this world tasting! My favorite cookie. So simple and quick to make. I usually make the icing more of a glaze, but you can make it thicker if you like. Delicious!

Perfect with a tall COLD glass of milk! These were so good, just right for the sweet tooth in most of us. I made 1/4 of the recipe and I used Ritz crackers, but other than this I prepared as directed. I love the "butteryness" of the cracker with the toppings. The condensed milk had a slight caramel/butterscotch flavor. I have managed to save a few for DH. Delicious! Thanks Aunt Paula!
