From Cracker To Cookie

Several years ago my mom wrote a recipe book for us kids of dishes we grew up eating. This book is well loved and each of us kids treasure it greatly! Saltine Cracker Cookies

Line an 11 x 17 cookie sheet with foil and oil the foil.Place saltine crackers on foil; be sure to fill all open spaces with crackers.Bring to boil 1 cup butter; do not use margarine.
And 1 cup brown sugar.
Boil for 3 minutes.Pour onto crackers and spread well.Bake in a 350 oven for 5 minutes.As soon as you pull the pan from the oven sprinkle the top with a 12-ounce package of chocolate chips. I like using miniature chips because they melt faster.As the chocolate chips begin to soften spread out evenly.Sprinkle with finely chopped nuts.Allow to harden; if you are impatient, like I am , place in the fridge or freezer to quicken the process.Store in a covered container.

Wow, these look fantastic! I may have to try making some. Will definitely save the recipe. I've been catching up on reading your blog. I think I'll go type up an email to you while I've got you on my mind!! (((hugs)))

Wow! I'd forgot what that book looked like.. seems I also put some of my artistic scribbles on the cover too :-)
I've been thinking of making more of those candies but keep forgetting to buy the crackers.
