Nostalgia cookies were one of the first sweets to go on my menu. I wanted a special name for them but “goober clusters” didn’t seem to go with the atmosphere. I asked my customers for name suggestions after they tasted a sampling. Almost without exception, I got reactions like, “ooooh, this reminds me of my grandmother’s cookies” or “this makes me think of….” or “I haven’t had these since I was a child.” Well, the obvious name came to mind because of everyone’s sentimental recollections.
