"My young grandsons love these cookies, and I love to make them," writes Jim Roth of East Peoria, Illinois. "I bake bread and rolls about once a week and also make all of our family's Christmas cookies and candy," he adds.
"The recipe for these scrumptious cookies was handwritten in a cookbook I received from my husband's grandmother," notes Karin Woodbury of Ocala, Florida. "She told my husband when he was young that these treats were a good way to get his carrots. He loved then anyway!"
Patricia Kaesta of Brockton, Massachusetts jazzes up a packaged cookie mix, then lets Junior Mints melt on top of the warm treats to create an easy frosting. "These delicious cookies are requested at every gathering," she says.
Crisp outside but chewy inside, these sweet sensations will disappear in a hurry. "I home-school our six children," writes Mary Dudek from Alliance, Ohio. "The kids always have friends over, so I like to keep snacks on hand. They love these cookies."
I've had this simple recipe for a long time and got the idea of layering the mix after seeing similar gift mixes in stores. I have yet to meet the person who doesn't rave over the cookies. I sometimes use M&M's in place of the peanut butter chips. —Francine Wingate, New Smyrna Beach, Florida
