    Irish Rose's Note:

    These cookies won $10,000 for Miss Laura Rott from Naperville, Illinois in a long ago Pillsbury Baking Contest. I can remember my mother making them for us and how good they were. I still have the original recipe that my mother used and since the paper is becoming a little brittle, I'm going to copy it here so I won't damage the original.

      These were very good. I used Andes candies, I thought the Eight O'clock's were a little large for this. I baked at 360 for 10 minutes. I think next time I'd lower it down to 350 and sub some whipping cream for the water. Thanks for posting. Great recipe.
