The other day Melissa brought her boys over uber early in the morning for me to take to school. she had to be at work at 6 AM, and Glen had to go out of town at 4 AM. So at 5AM, here comes the grands!
Gunner was asleep on the couch, Andrew on one of the recliners and Hudson in my arms in the other recliner. It didn't take us long to go back to sleep. At 7:15 Bruce woke us up. While I helped the boys get dressed, Bruce made scrambled eggs. They wolfed those eggs down, especially Hudson. 2 fisted eating!
Anyway, as we were talking, Gunner wanted to know if I knew how to make cookies. I knew they were coming back over after school, so I said yes, we could make them when they came back. I asked, Doesn't mommy make cookies? No, she doesn't know how!!! Oh Gunner! Melissa is a good cookie maker. She works full time, so cookies don't always get made.
Anyway, they all came back after school and we proceeded to make cookies, or rather grandma did, and Mom (Melissa) helped a lot, LOL.......
We decided on Sister Cunningham's Favorite Cookies in the Whole World! Many years ago, while living in CA., the sister missionaries came often, and usually brought us these cookies. I begged for the recipe. Sister Cunningham had the recipe memorized. She shared with me, and I will share with you!
Getting ready to bake
