My daughter went to the local Safeway today and brought home some Mother's iced oatmeal cookies. Yum!
They're back, made by K, the corn flake people. Now the cookie aisle won't look so depressing.
Mother's cookies started in Oakland California in 1914 and abruptly shut down last year. I don't know if they're sold nationally or if it's just another bay area treat - like Red's Tamales.
