TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened

"Great recipe. SUPER simple. My dough came out very wet and in hindsight I should have added a little more flour because they spread more then they probably should have in the first baking. I also may cook them at a lower temperature next time because the edges were getting a little too well daone too quickly. I know that can vary ont he oven though too. I'm not an every day baker but these are so simple I wouldn't hesitate to do them again!"
