"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:
This recipe came from Grandma Gafford, Bobby Jo's mother. She was not big on definite amounts or instructions, so you need a little experimenting here, but the cookies are worth the effort!!!
