Nabisco Mallomars

Fall is in the air, which when I was growing up meant that Mallomars would soon be showing up on store shelves and shortly thereafter in my stomach. These marvelous delicate cookies are still a tradition with me and I eat a box of them while watching scary movies every October. What day in October you ask? A good question, usually the first weekend of good chilly weather. Fingers crossed the ol’ mercury drops quickly in the next few days.
