Garbage Cookies

This recipe comes from my friend Esther K.

When Joey and her daughters were in grammar school, Esther and I would take turns visiting each other's home. Whoever, was the hostess would also provide a new treat of some kind. This is one of the treats Esther introduced us too.

Note: Esther wrote on the recipe she gave me that this recipe originally came from Cindy T. Mahalo to you both.
