You won't believe it until you taste them. These Cracker Jack Cookies taste just like the candied popcorn Cracker Jacks. Thanks to Needlepoint 142 for telling me about these great tasting cookies.

F.Y.I. - Yes, these do look a little like Lace Cookies. The difference between the two is that Cracker Jack Cookies also have coconut and crisp rice cereal in them besides the rolled oats.

Yum, Member tuffyulrich

When we lived in Alabama we had a Mennonite bakery that would bake these cookies and we LOVED them!! This recipe tastes exactly like theirs. It was one thing I missed about the south!!!
