When I first started working for McDougal Littell Publishing Company, I thought it would be nice to make Sandies to take to teachers since my name is Sandy. I soon found that I needed far too many cookies to take these cookies. They take longer to bake than I had time for in my busy job. They're ever so good, though. I believe that they're in my recipe collection from Betty Crocker's Cooky Book, which I've had for about 50 years. Instead of Sandies, the teachers get store-bought cookies and little bags of candy with "Candy from Sandy" fluorescent stickers on them!
