YUMMY COOKIES THAT EVEN THE
GRANDKIDS CAN MAKE!
BUTTERSCOTCH CRUNCHIES
12-ounce package butterscotch pieces
3-ounce can chow mein noodles
1 cup salted peanuts

Microwave butterscotch pieces 5 minutes at 3/4 power, stir smooth.  Stir
in noodles and nuts.  Drop by teaspoons onto waxed paper.  Let stand
about 20 minutes until set.  Store tightly covered in cool, dry place.  
MINUTEMAN MACAROONS
2-2/3 cups Angel Flake coconut (7 ounce package)
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix all together.  Drop by teaspoon one inch apart onto well-greased
baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned.
(Grandma Lyn thanks her sister, Gretchen, for sharing this great recipe many years ago.)
GRANDMA LYN'S NOTE:  These macaroons are great as they are, but
to make them extra special, melt a half-cup or so of chocolate chips in the
microwave, stir in a teaspoon of shortening, and dip the bottoms of the
cooled macaroons into the chocolate.  Set on waxed paper until hard. 
Almost like a Mounds candy bar!   
NO-BAKE PEANUT BUTTER  SQUARES
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup chunky peanut butter
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate morsels
2 tablespoons shortening
Combine butter and peanut butter in a 2-quart glass bowl, cover with
paper towel, and microwave at HIGH 1-1/2 minutes.  Stir in graham
cracker crumbs and powdered sugar.  Press into an 11x7x1-1/2 inch
baking dish.  Combine morsels and shortening in a 2-cup liquid
measuring cup; microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 2 minutes or until
melted.  Spread over peanut butter mixture.  Cover and chill.
Cut into squares.  Makes 4 dozen.
