This recipe is at least 3rd generation in my husband’s family and I completely understand why it’s lasted so long.  Michigan Rocks are soft, chewy, mildly sweet cookies that are perfect for dessert or breakfast (dunked in coffee or tea – yum!).  I don’t do a lot of baking from scratch, but these are a holiday staple in my house.  Many thanks to Mom Mom Murphy for the recipe.

You may or may not know that I’m a bit of a picky eater.  Trying new food is not my favorite thing because I tend to have a pretty strong reaction if I don’t like it, or taste something in there that is on my list.

However, when Mr. O and I were dating I was presented this cookie by his mother.  Yeah, the mother of the man I really liked.  I had no choice.

They were soooooooo good.

Once we got married I got my hands on the recipe and now I make multiple batches each year because we just gobble them up.

If you have a KitchenAid Stand Mixer, you can use the batter attachment to mix and it makes life a lot easier.  And a Pampered Chef stoneware cookie sheet will help them cook perfectly evenly.
