If cookies were currency my family would be millionaires.
Okay, so this amazing cookie recipe didn’t make us our fortune but it certainly “bought” us some childhood friends! I wish my family could take credit for these cookies but the recipe was in fact given to us by a friend’s mother. However, we churned out so many of these delectable morsels we became synonymous with being “those kids with the cookies”. My mother would send us off on school outings with a massive round white Tupperware filled with these delicious nibbles and invariably we would come home with just a few crumbs and a couple of new friends.
These cookies are not your typical chewy, gooey kind that are so popular today – they have a much shorter texture with a sugary finish that almost dissolves on your tongue. In fact, they are very reminiscent of “Famous Amos Cookies” from the 80s/90s – in both taste and aroma! Of course, these cookies are absolutely prefect for dunking in just about anything! Personally though, I can only manage to scoff a couple at a time as they pack quite a sugar-punch.
The following recipe makes quite a few cookies but I wouldn’t recommend halving the quantities as you don’t want to mess with the Cookie Chemistry. At any rate, if you can’t trust yourself to have so many cookies in the house then give them away to your neighbours – you never know, the cookies may just “buy” you some new friends!
