  1. Just made these for Youth Group's New Year's Eve (2009) sale. So easy to make. Very yummy, too. They'll make a nice addition to the bake sale, as they are a quick and NOT MESSY treat while walking around the downtown festivities. Thanks for a nice recipe.
  2. This is a favourite with my family and friends in Oman! An excellent keeper recipe that is a winner!
  3. delicious! I used natural peanut butter and found them a bit sweet for my taste... Next time I'll try using one cup of sugar and go from there. These were super easy to make and taste fantastic!
  4. My husband described these cookies as the ones he loved as a child and hasn't had since... I made them over the weekend and I've never seen him polish off a batch of cookies so fast! I followed the recipe exactly - easy to make and wildly praised! ADDING TO REVIEW 1/6/09: I made this cookie recipe into a pie - I made exactly as recommended than put it into a deep pie dish liberally sprayed with non-stick cooking spray - then I topped it with Reeses Peanut Butter Chips & M&Ms. I pressed the candy topping down into the cookie mix while it was still hot. I served with whipped cream. SUPER DOOPER GOOD! I took pics of my pie and have posted them here. Thanks again for such a versatile recipe!
  5. I just made this recipe and it is exactly what I remember from childhood! One of my coworkers told me I had to share when I made it...i just don't know how many are going to make it. Excellent! Thanks for posting!


I live in the San Francisco area and love it here. I discovered Recipezaar (then Kitchen) in 2001 and have been so happy to have my favorite recipes stored safely here. I am mother to 7 and grandmother to 7. I love to knit, smock, sew, etc., but my favorite hobby of the moment is traditional rug hooking. This is a sample of what I do.? It's called "November".? I dyed most of the wool myself. It is made from wool flannel, cut into strips a little less than 1/4" and then worked into a linen backing. This is my 3rd rug.
