    Sweet Diva's Note:

    From I think these taste even better than the Grandma's brand I use to buy as a teenager at convenience stores - same taste, but much fresher because it is homemade!

      I used to have this book a few years back and this happened to be my favorite recipe, so I have made it many times, and I just wanted to let you know the wrong oven temperature is posted on this recipe. It's actually supposed to be 275 degrees. The reason for the lower temperature is that it cooks slower which keeps it moist and chewy. Don't overcook these, even if it looks gooey on top, if it has cooked for 20 minutes, take it out, you will see after it cools that it is done! These cookies are AWESOME!!

      These didn't work at all for me. They were brown after 22 mins but still completely raw! They stuck to the pan and came out flat. They did have a good taste after you get past the raw part
