How I obtained this recipe is...When I left my ex husband, months later I finally came back to retreve the rest of my stuff (mainly my cookbooks)I came to find out that one of his ex girlfriends(prob. the one he cheated on me with) left one of her recipes in MY COOKBOOK!and named it "my man cookies"..I wanted to rip it up to pieces.. but then I just baked them instead.They were pretty good..but I bake better!Other than my son,this was the only good thing I got out of the relationship!!
