    Bergy's Note:

    This recipe was in a local paper many years ago. They may not be the world's best cookies but they are sure in the running. I have made them many many times and these cookies disappear very quickly. They are crisp & crunchy

      I used this recipe for many years. I found it in Jr. League cookbook, "San Francisco a la Carte" -- that version is exactly the same except it calls for 1 cup butter instead of shortening. Excellent cookies!

      These cookies are very good, I will make them again for sure. I made some with chocolate chips added and some with sugar sprinkles (I added sugar before baking). They are chewy and crunchy all at the same time with a melt in you mouth feel! The only drawback is the high fat content, but we can all spluge once in awhile can't we? They were very easy to make, and I ended up with more than the 36 stated.

      I'm afraid I did some extensive substituting in this recipe- I was originally going to make a chocolate chip cookie, then discovered I was out of chips and vanilla. I came across this recipe, and did the following: used butter instead of shortening, 1/2 cup vegetable instead of 1 cup canola, almond instead of vanilla extract, Post Bran Flakes instead of cornflakes, and added 1/3 cup of cocoa. This came out tasting like the most lush, chewy marzipan cookie I have ever tasted. Intensely flavored, this cookie is indeed a winner, quite possibly the adult world's best cookie! Thanks, Bergy!!
