3 c Master Mix
1 c brown sugar
1/3 c water
1 tbsp vanilla
1/3 c nuts and/or
1/2 c chocolate chips
Use your hands to mix the dough, then roll spoonfuls into small balls and flatten them slightly with a fork OR drop the dough by teaspoon or tablespoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375F for 10-12 minutes.
These were even better the second day, and didn't last beyond that evening.
The dough may seem to be too dry once you've mixed it, but be patient; it takes a minute or two for everything to moisten. It will.
The original recipe is on a blue sheet of paper with the master mix recipe and a variety of recipes to use it in. Where it came from, I don't recall.
