Cracker Jack Cookies

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by FrenchBunny

This is a great batch of cookies to make for school bazaars or for your own home. Absolutely delicious, my kids love them. But this does make a large batch. I usually do half now and it makes 48 cookies. I vary the optional with coconut or chocolate chips or raisins. Sometimes I separate the batches and mix in chocolate chips in one and raisins in another.

The name of this cookie had me expecting them to taste like cracker jacks. That was not the case, but they sure were a "cracker jack" of a cookie! I added some coconut and loved that. I love that it makes a large batch. I used half this week and have the other half in the freezer for a busy week when I don't have time to bake! Thanks for sharing!
