The version I use (and alter to include coconut) is from Azaleas to Zucchini, East Texas Food, Festivals and Entertainment from A to Z (1995) by the Smith County Medical Society Alliance. I'm not sure why the recipe contributor decided to call them Tokyo Cookies, but the name has grown on me over the years. It sounds more intriguing than Boiled Cookies or No-Bake Cookies. Plus, it always makes me sing the Godzilla song while they are boiling. Wait, maybe that's not a good thing.
|This cookbook was a gift from my mother-in-law.|
You can see that I've forgotten to allow time to boil them a time or two. Sometimes it is hard to read directions when one is having a chocolate emergency!
|Mmmm, smell the chocolatey goodness!|
The recipe optimistically claims to make 3 dozen cookies, but I usually get about 25 cookies out of it. Normally when that happens, it's because someone around here (*cough* me *cough*) likes to sample cookie dough, but boiling hot sugar syrup isn't great for sneaking samples, even if it is chocolate flavored.
|They may not look like much, but they have amazing restorative powers!|
