Vintage Pillsbury Candy Bar Cookies Recipe

I am still working on going thru this huge box full of vintage recipes that I snagged from my 85 yr old great aunt. Wow...I just found a vintage recipe by Pillsbury in a 1960's newspaper supplement for Candy Bar Cookies that looks delicious and I look forward to trying out the recipe next week.

Bake at 325 degrees for 12-16 minutes. Makes 3-4 dozen cookies.
