mrs. panzer’s pudding cookies

i have been the family baker for as long as i can remember. i can’t recall the actual process of being “taught” to bake, but i do recall snippets of using a measuring cup or rolling out dough at an early age. and of course i remember my cherished easy bake oven. ah, but i digress…

my first vivid and complete recollection of baking cookies ‘outside of the home’ was in the kitchen of the school cafeteria. once in awhile we had the opportunity to take a mini class, and i chose baking with our gym teacher, mrs. panzer. and the first cookies she taught us how to bake were these pudding cookies.


more than thirty-five years later, i still make batches of these for my mom and dad, who eat them heartily, though dad likes them a bit more “burnt” than mom. no matter, a batch from the oven is usually gone within the day.
