Scrappy Jessi's Cookie Swap

Scrappy Jessi is having her 2ND Annual Cookie Swap

The recipe I'm sharing is one I have made every Christmas for years. This candy is an all time favourite of my children and my sister-in-law, who always receives a batch every year. Click on the picture to get a larger view.

The recipe is from the Better Homes and Garden's recipe book Cookies and Candies. 1966.

Miss Sandy said...

Sounds yummy! I have a treat for you today too! You won one of my snowmen! Email me your address and I will send him on his way! said...

I remember making these with mom as a kid, so yep, the mid 60s is when we would have done it. That stands out in my mind because of the pudding mix, I thought that was so cool, to use pudding in cookies.

Have a wonderful holiday!

I think the old recipe books have the best desserts in them. These sound really good!

Miss Sandy said...
