These cookies were some of the few store bought cookies my grandmother would bring home. When these cookies were around all was well in my little girl life~I knew I must have been good. They bring back so many wonderful memories for me. I have passed the Grammy~ rainbow sprinkled animal cookie experience to my little grand daugher. Only to find out this week that Mother's Cookies will be no longer-they have closed their factory doors~OOOH Nooo! Luckily my husband and son were able to grab the very last bag at our local Safeway store. I thought it best to photograph a plate full so I can refer to it whenever I need to. And so sadly another end to a long time favorite. I fear to think what will be next to go???
I must admit they do not taste as good now as I remember. But oh that exciting feeling of goodness still comes over me as I choose my favorite animal shape to pop in my mouth!
R.I.P. Mother's Cookies!
