Love, Aunt Dona
these cookies are one of my favorite childhood memories, she'd bring them to picnics every summer. and they were SO good! I have never made them, though...the immense measurements and 10 dozen boggle my mind. I know it could be cut down....but I bet mine would never be as good as hers were....so chewy and soft and chocolately...and of course, healthy, since they contain cottage cheese! deb
