This Rusk cookie recipe is very easy to make, and since it’s one of the most popular items during our family gatherings, my mother-in-law even makes large batches in advance to freeze and have on hand for Christmas gatherings.

    I forgot to ask at what temperature do we bake it at? I’m assuming 350 degrees F. In step 7, it says continue to toast but for how long? In step 8, it says to turn over and toast for 7 minutes so I’m assuming for 7 minutes the first time and for 350 degrees as well? Thank you. Sorry for all the questions. I am halfway following the directions and there was missing info in between.
