YUM! Simple and tasty, with very few ingredients, and plenty of room for 'playing around!' I halved this recipe, which yielded 40 cookies. I also halved the dough, added some pecans and 1/2 tsp. of vanilla to one half, before refrigeration. These baked in 12 minutes, using 2 cookie sheets or 10, when only baking 1 sheet. I really like the texture (soft), and I know DH will just love them! Made for the Best of 2010 tag game! Thanks for sharing, Mandy ny.

one of my favorite cookies, everyone at works ask for them. I uasyally use buttermilk, that is what the recipe I was giving years ago said.

Good, not overly sweet cookie with nice flavor-it might not be sweet enough for some, but I liked them! Next time I may add nuts, just because I love nuts in my cookies and maybe a little spice for added flavor. Cake-like texture and this would make a decent bar cookie too! I made for Spring PAC 2010-thanks!
