This recipe is sometimes called Eskimo Cookies. But this seems to have less sugar & butter. I made this with my 7th grade Home Ec class. During exam week I had an extra period with one class. I needed something fun, yet educational & could be done in a regular classroom. This was a perfect recipe! I changed the yield to 18, so the recipe would use 1 stick of butter (we used margarine). The only change I would make is reducing some of the sugar. Many students liked the recipe as is, but since I changed the yield,the sugar measurement is a bit wonky (1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp). I would take the 1 Tbsp out and see how it works out. For teachers: 90-min block with a lunch period in the middle. I chilled the cookies during the lunch period, but there is plenty of time even without. If I had a 45-min period, I would (or have the students the previous class) pre-measure the dry ingredients so all they have to do is dump it in a bowl, add wet & mix. Then put in freezer for 10-15 min & eat. I used this as an example of something to do when baby sitting children (not too young & always ask the parents). It is a good recipe because it is has some redeeming nutrition (fiber- but we also discuss the high sugar & fat content), has no peanut butter (since many kids have allergies), doesn’t need heat (oven or stove) & kids can use hands to mix ingredients.

I didn't have powdered sugar ... so I used 1 C of granulated sugar in the mix and reduced the cocoa powder by 1 T. Then, I rolled in cocoa powder. I was running short on time, so I threw them in the freezer to chill. So yum! And even better after they sat in the fridge over night. Thx!
