If the Oreos were my favorite cookie this year, these were definitely Ant's. 
I'm pretty sure he ate the entire batch by himself after Reli and I had our initial taste test!

I've always loved how you can tell so much about a person by the way they write down recipe instructions.
Some people like to over explain in an attempt to help you understand, and just confuse the heck outta you, 
but I can tell that this one came directly from my Gramma. Short, sweet, and to the point. 
It really shows off her "we don't have time to mess around" attitude! :D
