These cookies are no bake, take less than 15 minutes to throw together, and they are delicious! It sounds like a recipe taken from Family Circle magazine circa 1958, on the same page as the hot dog casserole and a Jello mold salad made with canned asparagus and mayonnaise – but trust me, you’re gonna love these cookies!

- Combine corn syrup and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, and bring to a boil.
