I’m happy to share a family secret with you. These are my great grandma’s go-to cookies that would be gobbled up by all of us kids before she could barely get them out of the oven. Now that I have the recipe and make them on the regular in my own home, I appreciate how clever she was. They call for pretty much all the leftovers in the house. Nuts, chocolate chips, cereals, raisins, whatever you’ve got, you can toss them in and they always come out great. Just swap out the proportions pretty equally and you’re all set. Everyone’s happy!

The recipe and over 100 more of my favorites from friends and family all around the world are from my latest cookbook, Make Your Own Rules Cookbook. Just in time to get your winter nesting, cooking, and baking on, all digital versions of the book are $4.99.
