WW Recipe of the Day: Old-Fashioned Crunchy Jumble Cookies
Nana's crunchy jumbles are one of my favorite cookies from childhood that have stood the test of time. I love these crunchy jumbles now as much as I did back then.
Did you know October 1 is Homemade Cookies Day or that October is National Cookie Month?
On a more serious note, October is also National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The Skinny on Crunchy Jumble Cookies
So in honor of my 91-year-old grandmother, a breast cancer survivor, I made a batch of her crunchy jumble cookies today. They are a simple old-fashioned cookie made chewy, crunchy and sweet with rice crispies and raisins.
She got the recipe from her sister-in-law, My Great Aunt Esther, decades ago and makes them a few times a year.
Can you imagine still baking in your 90s? I hope to be! There is something so sweet and satisfying about baking and sharing cookies, I hope I never have to quit.

- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups rice crispies

- Blend in the flour mixture.
- Stir in the rice crispies and raisins.
