Buttery cookies that just melt in your mouth! Every Thanksgiving I have to make like 3 batches and they go soooooo fast! They're great for Christmas goodies as well. They taste great at room temperature, in the fridge, or in the freezer.

i made these tonight and the taste is there, but the part where we need to roll the dough was impossible to roll into a ball. The dough was extremely wet and sticky to roll it. I followed to the T. Not sure what happened. Read More

I made these to take to a church potluck and they are wonderful. Easy and only a few normal ingredients. I had to leave the leftovers at church because if they had come home with me I would have had the rest for dinner! Read More
