    muncheechee's Note:

    . . . From One Easy Recipe This recipe came to me via my mil on a tattered, torn, and taped magazine page that once belonged to her mother. The original description says, "Cookies to please everybody! Eight different kinds - one easy recipe. And, oh, that delicious, real butter flavor when you make 'em the real butter way!" (NOTE: The prep time will vary by cookie and if the recipe calls for chilling the dough. The nutrition info is based on a yield of 6 dozen cookies - the yeild also varies by recipe followed).

      The butter crispies and snowballs are awesome. My mom has used this recipe for over 30 years. These cookies were the highlight of many holiday care packages she sent me and my family while in the military. The cookies are light and flavorful, not doughy like some sugar cookies. Especially good with cinnamon/sugar sprinkled on top. Grandma's cookies are the best.
