maw-maw cookies


These are quite possibly the world's least photogenic cookies,
but they are also some of the simplest and tastiest. It's an
old family recipe, rarely written down, but I will do so here.

2 cups graham cracker crumbs, 1 10oz can condensed milk, 8oz
of chocolate chips. (Less is fine if you get chicken about them.)

Mix crumbs and condensed milk, then mix in chocolate chips,
spread into greased and floured 9x13 (or so, you can improvise)
pan and bake at 350 for around half an hour or until they are a
little bouncy and starting to brown slightly.

According to everyone my great-grandmother made this up, possibly
during the depression when everyone used condensed milk like mad.

I tried this and liked it tonight.

We used butterscotch chips instead of chocolate...then ate half the pan.

Thanks for sharing...err, maybe not--that offsets two days' working out.

The "and then we ate half the pan" thing is the only problem with these. They're dangerous, and I really like them still warm. :)

Glad you liked them.
