Let da ol' mon tell you a little about this recipe. First, it's the most viewed cookie recipe on Cajun Clark's Big Cookbook Web site: http://cajunclarks.com . Second, when going through his Mother's and Miz Amy's recipe files he found that both ladies had the same recipe. Funny thing is, they're 2,000 miles apart--West Coast and Deep South. Third, Caj was recently told by an informed source that the original recipe came from Betty Crocker many, many years ago. And that sounds about right. Finally, it's been rumored that da ol' mon might have to start baking before all is said and done. "Nah, no way." There are those who can and those who can't, now you know what rung ol' mon Caj occupies on the cookie ladder. So there you have it, Enjoy.
