Rob Roy Cookies

I first came across the recipe for Rob Roy Cookies in Amy Cox-Jones's fine, whole foods, seasonal eating cookbook, A World Of Wisdom.  I adapted the recipe a bit to fit our family's tastes but the recipe was great on its own.  This cookbook is fabulous for seasonal eating ideas, especially if you have a family.
