    Chicagopm's Note:

    I used to love the butter cookies they sold in my high school cafeteria. I've been looking for the recipe and this comes very close (if my poor old memory serves me right). These might be a little more tender than the CPS butter cookies but they're close enough for me!

      The first time I tried these I used margarine instead of butter and Splenda instead of sugar. You don't want to know how terrible they were. They were like little lumps of stuff. If you threw them at a window, it would bust for sure. It was bad!!<br/>The second, third, fourth and on and on times I made them, I followed the recipe to the "t" and how amazing it was that they tasted like the ones at good ole' Hubbard H.S. in Chicago!!
