Penuche Frosting

This recipe is from my Nanna. 
1/2 cup of butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup of milk
1 3/4-2 cups of powdered sugar

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Then add the brown sugar. Boil and stir over low heat for two minutes. Add the milk and bring back to a boil stirring constantly. Then cool to lukewarm. Gradually add the powdered sugar while beating with an electric mixer. Then spread on a cooled cake. Makes enough to frost the top of a 13x9 cake

Mrs. Fields Cookies

This recipe was given to my mom by a close family friend. Here is the story it came with:

"A woman from the American Bar Association called Mrs. Fields Cookies and asked for the recipe. She was told there was a "two-fifty" charge for the recipe. She assumed it was $2.50, and charged it to her Visa. When she received her statement and discovered that it was indeed "two-fifty"; Two HUNDRED and Fifty dollars. In order to get her money's worth she is passing it on to everyone. Make a copy and give it to a friend with a blessing."
