Cracker Jack Cookies … a favorite recipe from my sister’s recipe box

A few days ago I had the pleasure of enjoying lunch at The Butterhorn Bakery and Cafe in Frisco, CO, www.butterhornbakery.com. Their baked goods are wonderful.  After having a wonderful sandwich and soup combo for lunch, I took home a sampling of cookies including Ginger, Oatmeal Raisin, Double Chocolate and White Chocolate Macadamia cookies.  Yum!!!

When I returned home, I was in the mood to make cookies.  After a walk down memory lane, via my recipe box, I rediscovered a cookie recipe my sister, Carolyn, gave me over 30 years ago.  It brings back wonderful memories of Iowa family gatherings.  The cookies are chewy and crispy, yet moist.  I will not be a stranger to this recipe any longer!
