"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Personal Notes:
My mother was absolutely the best baker I have ever known, though when it comes to cookies, my sister, Weezie is a pretty close 2nd. These are a melt in your mouth fabulous treat, and they bring back a tast of our childhood each time we indulge. This recipe can easily be doubled (it's what I usually do) and baked in a 13x9" pan. You'll see why they are so aptly named immediately. YUM-O
