"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
My mother, Pearl McCarry (daughter of Duncan McMillan) made these cookies quite often. One day Oramel Lake (son of Dorothy Lake who was daughter of Rob McMillan) ran away from home and came to visit. Mother gave him a cookie and he had never had a filled cookie before. He sneaked back home to the adjoining farm. No one knew he had run away until he said, "Pearl made a cake that looked just like a pie!"
