From food and family magazine. A good cookie for the kids to make using those boxes of jello that never get made. Do not overbake!

Okay, I remember this recipe. Actually I did a search here for this because I don't have the recipe any more. I loved these. So when the post stated it was from food and family I looked it up! This is the same, there are no mistakes in it. I actually loved these and thought they were great. Thank you so much for posting this; I want to make these again. Five stars from me!
