Cookies & Bars
Mom made these for every occasion. They are very well liked.
She always made a cookie sheet of sponge cake and then cut them into 1 inch squares before icing with confectioner's Icing and then rolling in coconut. She made a second variety where she would flavor the icing with maple syrup and roll the cookies in chopped walnuts.
This is essentially my mother's 'Butter Balls' recipe. It comes from Joan's Mom, Evelyn Rezek.
This was Aunt Nellie Dalesio's favorite cookie.
I don't know where Mom got this recipe, but it was one of hers and my favorite cookies.
