“The following recipe is for Hermits, which are a type of spiced cookie bar. This recipe has been passed down in my family for generations. *Just like Chocolate Chip Cookies these should be removed from the oven before they are solid. They should have a LIGHT brow color. Otherwise they get as hard as rocks. If you do over bake them try zapping them in the microware for 15 seconds or so before eating.”
