"On a visit to my folks in Kansas this summer, I noticed my mom hid the cookie jar in a new place each time she gave one of the grandchildren a cookie," Connie Hankins writes. "When I asked why, she told me she had found this new cookie recipe and it was so good, the kids ate them all at once unless she hid them.
"Naturally, I demanded the recipe and after my family tried the cookies at home they changed the name to Vacuum Cleaner Cookies, an appropriate name, I thought, considering the speed with which they disappear."
