Personal Notes:
When the children were young, we had a cottage. Many evenings they would go fishing with their Father. I would keep a log of these cookies in the fridge and take them out and bake one log (about 2 dozen cookies) so they would be ready to eat when they came in from fishing. Hence the name Fishing Cookies. It seems like a lot of sugar but it does make 6 dozen cookies.
