My Mom had her favorite cookie from her town's little community cookbook. It probably only had 50 pages or so and was 8 1/2 x 5 1/5. One page on that cookbook was stained and well worn. It was the one with the recipe for Uncooked Cookies. These should have been labeled Unbaked Cookies... as they were actually cooked on the stove top. At Easter, Mom would add three small colorful jelly beans in the center and turn them into birds nests. While I was never a fan of jelly beans, I still love seeing these cookies (Russell Stover started selling a candy version shortly after my Mom began making them). They never fail to bring a smile to my face.
So if you're looking for a chocolatey, quick and easy holiday treat, give this one a try. Check out the recipe on my side bar HERE.
Happy Easter Mom. Thanks for all the great holiday memories.
