Ammonia Cookies?

When I lived in PA, someone made ammonia cookies for a party. Then later a colleague served them at a staff meeting. Does anyone have a recipe for ammonia cookies?

Do you know any history behind these?

Does the ammonia just evaporate in the cooking process?

  • Ick? I googled it, though and there's like 204,000 links/recipes. So it must be something good!

  • I have heard of them, they actually have a small amount of ammonia in them? Don't think I have ever tried them, I would ask the person who brought them to the party.

  • I would love to ask them except that they have moved since then.
