These easy-to-make cookies simply melt in your mouth! I've passed the recipe around to many friends. After I gave the recipe to my sister, she entered the cookies in a local fair and won the "best of show" prize! —Sylvia Ford, Kennett, Missouri

"This recipe was incredibly easy. Mine turned out beautifully; very similar to the cookies pictured.

I drop them, then roll them. I sprinkled a bit of sugar on mine before baking too."

"This will replace my current BUTTER Cookie recipes! I'm not fond of sugar cookies but this is more like a butter cookie. The only changes I made were to use almond flavor and flatten them with a sugar dipped glass. They were delicious! I saw the recipe yesterday, needed a desert for a men's meeting my husband was hosting in the evening, so made "cookie cups" using the bottom side of muffin tins. I filled them with fruit & Reddi Wip (correct spelling) and they were a huge hit!"

"good recipe & I sell at Farmer Markets. Some reviewers just can not dislike a recipe & rate as such. They have to report thrown in trash, comment about dog. I am no longer surprised at the rudeness of reviewers on this site."

"Recipe needs sour cream!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 9, 2015

"The only reason why I gave this 4 stars and not 5 was because of the look of the cookies. They aren't the prettiest (they look nothing like the picture) but they are so delicious! I read two ratings saying these were tasteless and I completely disagree. If you are the type of person that needs pounds of chocolate and have a sickeningly sweet, sweet tooth, then don't try this recipe. For everyone else though, these cookies are delicious and perfect with tea!"
