January 31, 2011 by Leanne Vogel July 22, 2015I went down memory lane making these cookies yesterday. I grew up in a fairly healthy household. We didn’t have a lot of money, but my mom tried the best she could to feed us the healthiest and highest quality ingredients. My dad was another story. He grew up with the notion – food is food. You eat what’s here, and that’s that. So, when my mom was working late, we’d get to have sausage and pierogi’s, cheese and bacon’s [bread with melted cheese and cooked bacon], or crackers, kielbasa and cheese. Eating with our dad was awesome. So much butter, bacon grease, and love came from his cooking. Another fantastic part to growing were treat Fridays, where my sister and I got to chose 1 treat each week to take to school with us. Mom had several things saved up so we had quite the selection. Fruit snacks, granola bars, dried fruit, and these cookies. My sister and I called them birds nests. I cannot tell you what their actual name was, or what company made them. I can only remember the taste, and after 3 tries on Sunday morning, I got it bang on. These are delicious, and couldn’t be easier to whip up!
