Everyone needs a good dessert recipe for when your short on time and cash. These delicious and simple cookies are my answer to this dilemma. It's a recipe from my youth. And yes it hasn't escaped my notice that they look like something you might find in the backyard or in a diaper. These aren't pretty, but they are pretty tasty.
