REVIEW: recipe rating
This is a great recipe! I was trying to find a recipe my mother used many years ago that was exactly like this with the addition of bacon. If you use 8-10 slices of well-cooked, well-drained and crumbled bacon it adds a great flavor to this cookie that is great for kids for a unique breakfast. As my 5 yo son Craig said..."Cookies for breakfast? That's silly!" Silly enough for him to eat alot of them!!
