From Farm Journals Best Ever Cookies cookbook, also found on ebay; 1980. These have been around for years, called no bake, etc; i love this recipe the best & don't use wax paper actually i simply put on cookie sheets & once cooled, transfer to plates. Even doubling the recipe which we always do, my grandkids make them disappear quickly!
