#NATIONAL COOKIE DAY

IN HONOR OF NATIONAL COOKIE DAY AND THE 2 GREATEST COOKIES MY MOM MADE!

 These are two of the best cookies my mom made when I was a kid! In honor of National Cookie Day and my mom who passed away 10 years ago and would have been 91 this year I'd like to share her handwritten recipes from her recipe box!

NO BAKE COOKIES

I think every kid has made these when they were young! I can remember barely being able to see over the saucepan to stir them! As well as reaching the counter top to put them onto the wax paper! Needless to say, most of these have been eaten before they even had time to cool!
