    Loves2Teach's Note:

    This wonderful recipe was in circulation when I was a kid in the 70s. Years later, a woman brought a tray of these to the office, which I instantly recognized as THOSE COOKIES FROM MY CHILDHOOD, and she refused to give me the recipe (said it was her babysitter's secret recipe)! I searched online (tried several recipes) and asked my friends and family off and on if they'd heard of it, for 10 years. I finally JUST found this online! They are SO GOOD! Bake them for your friends and family and share the recipe with the WORLD! Note, the number of cookies you get will vary - depending on how big you roll the balls.

      I made these for a Cub Scout campout. We have to be careful due to food allergies. All the boys could eat these. I made nearly 200 cookies and they were gone the first night! Everyone loved them. I think the Scout leader ate a couple of dozen himself! Thanks for sharing!

      Heavenly! I used sliced almonds and Total cereal, and snuck in half a cup of raisins...this goes in my file, for sure. They're warm out of the oven as I type this, and my husband will have a fit for these when he gets home. Better make sure I've got milk!:):)
