Butterballs

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Epi Curious

This recipe is from The Silver Palate Cookbook by Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins. These are incredible...have eaten these at Julee Rosso's wonderful Wickwood Inn B&B in Saugatuk, MI, where the food alone is worth a stay in the charming inn. These are always on our cookie tray at the holidays.

These were not overly -sweet, but absolutely delicious. I'll definitely be making these again!
