Awrey's was a local bakery in Detroit. These cookies were my favorites. Printed 12/12/1963 in section # 2 cookbook (out of print) Bob Allison’s Ask Your Neighbor

These are quite tasty. I felt the cookie mix needed a bit more butter or less dry ingredients, so I will reduce the flour and oats a bit next time, but the cookies were delicious.
