I haven’t had Foundation Icebox Cookies since I was a kid. Found the recipe and  had to give it a go. These are so simple to prep and keep extras in the freezer and cook when needed.  My grandchildren not only loves to eat these but love to help make them as well.   These are ideal for little snacks and on the go when out and about especially in picnics and lunch boxes.  Also, if you want to be a little bit extravagant, these are lovely with a drop of jam and cream.  Your lips will love them even if your hips won’t.
