Set out a basket of these pleasing "lollipops" at your next bazaar or family event and watch them disappear! You can easily create characters by icing the cookies with store-bought frosting like the CT home economists did here or serve them plain just as Jan Cassidy of El Reno, Oklahoma often does. "Our children love eating cookies either way," Jan details. "What I enjoy is the fact that serving the sweets on sticks like this keeps messy hands to a minimum."—Jan Cassidy, El Reno, Oklahoma
These cookies are a real hoot, and they taste as good as they look. Each fall, it was a tradition for my Grandma to bake batches of Owl Cookies. The sweets were so tasty that we'd beg her to make them before the leaves had even begun turning. —Liz Clemons, Sumter, South Carolina
Folks are quick to grab one of these cookies when they see they're chocolate. Once they discover the nuts and vanilla chips, they grad a second and sometimes a third. This recipe moved with me from Kentucky to Arizona and now to Ohio!

Whip together these richly sweet cookies for Mom, Dad—or the entire family anytime of year. "Children especially love them," attests Barbara Laferriere. She makes "bouquets" to give to kids (and adults!) who visit her Aylmer, Quebec home at Christmas.—Barbara Laferriere, Aylmer, Quebec
My aunt gave me this recipe, and my family thinks these cookies are delicious. We enjoy all different kinds of cookies, and with this recipe, we can combine three of our favorite kinds—oatmeal, peanut butter and chocolate chip—in one! —Jaymie Noble, Kalamazoo, Michigan
