Anitas AT Power Cookies
 
 
NOTE: If you do freeze them, package them individually because they don't separate well. The original recipe was called Baker's Breakfast Cookie (the recipe is online), but Anita (Trail Angel name, "A") altered the recipe somewhat. http://www.cdkitchen.com /recipes/recs/32/Bakers _Breakfast_Cookie41962.shtml
