We had a cooking class at Children's Hospital in Orange, CA. These were a favorite for the patients and adults. You should have been there to smell the wonderful scent of cookies right out of the oven and see the children's faces!!! I think these are called martian cookies because of the green flecks, and they are out of this world!!
