Lionel's wife Rosa will need a recipe that has ingredients that are easy to find and inexpensive.

Things like chocolate chips are expensive, and butterscotch chips are 'unobtainium'.

The cookies that Lionel sells now have very little butter, and the ingredients are low cost.

Here is a recipe for chewy oatmeal cookies that uses only 1 stick of butter, but you can use margarine instead. White or cane sugar can be substituted for the brown sugar (which is also expensive for Mexicans).

These cookies will turn crispy if baked too long in a hot oven.

One day I would love to tell the (years-gone-by) story of Lionel's death-defying trip across the border into the U.S. Wish him good luck for us!
