Make these for your family; take a plate to work; bring them along to a potluck. Wherever you serve them, you'll hear "These are my favorite kind of cookie!" They're everyone's favorite, but many people claim that they can't make them - some crisis always strikes. The secret lies not only in the proportion of ingredients, but also in the cooking time: Boil the mixture 1 minute - no less, or the cookies won't set; no more than 1 minute, or they'll crumble apart.
Makes about 2 dozen.
