"Melty flaky butter cookies! Wow. I would not chill the dough though, it made it too hard and I had to let it sit out for ages before shaping into balls."

"These cookies are my families favorite. I've made this cookie since I found in the magazine years ago. I always chill the dough overnight. Much easier to handle."
