This recipe was on the inside of a birthday card sent to my daughter back in 1982. My family enjoyed them immensely. Sometimes I would put 1/2 a bag of milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips in them for a nice change. Try them you might like them. :)

I received this card when I was little and we held on to it all these years. This is my absolute favorite cookie dough (yes, I do a little tasting while baking). Delicious!

I was just about to post this recipe myself. I, too, received this card long ago and have the remains of it pasted in my cookbook. Thanks so much for posting it. I usually double the recipe and these always go fast. They're called Crunchy Birthday Sweets on my card. Love them!
