Yum...Bread Crumb Cookies...

Today I made a "new to me" recipe. This recipe was from my maternal great grandmother's recipe collection. The instructions were to mix all ingredients and bake. Well, since we are using this recipe for our family reunion (newsletter and website), I needed to make a batch to find out the baking time/temperature.

The house smelled great while they were baking. They turned out to be crispy and chewy cookies. The ground cloves were definitely there...left a slight after taste. Next time I make them...and I will be...I might try cinnamon instead of the cloves or less of the cloves with cinnamon as well.

They were yummy otherwise and I am so excited to have recipes from my great grandmother handed down to me.
