Several years ago when the boys were younger we went to lots of Cub Scout and Boy Scout events.  At one of those events, a neighbor brought a tray of odd-looking pud-like cookies.  They didn’t look too appetizing, but after popping one into your mouth, you went back for more.  They became our family’s favorite ugly duckling go-to treat.  John whipped up a batch this morning to take to a family dinner after church this afternoon.  It’s a recipe worth throwing out there.  We’ve called them many things, which I won’t mention.  You can come up with your own name–but please, do try them.  They are a sure winner with kids and just about everyone else!
