This weekend Michael told me he wanted to make some boiled cookies like his grandmother, Mama Lea used to make...I was like huh? Boiled cookies? Then he told me the recipe and I knew what he was talking about...We would call these "no-bake" these days.
So I just set back and let Michael make his grandmother's cookie recipe...I just took the pictures and waited on samples.
These cookies are so good...chewy and chocolatey...like a cross between a cookie and a piece of candy. So good we made two batches.
