Taffy Cookie Recipe

With the demise of Mother's Cookies, I wonder if anyone out there has a recipe which is a close approximation of Mother's Taffy Cookies?

They are my favorite store bought cookie! Aside from eating them straight out of the bag, I use them for my vanilla cheesecake crust and in 'Taffy Cookies & Cream' Ice cream.

Any input would be very much appreciated!

    1. Here's the reply I got from Kellogg -about bringing Taffy's back!

      Kellogg Company plans on reintroducing many of Mother’s® Cookies back into stores on the West coast by May, 2009.
