Recipe by LizAnn
My sister-in-law gave me this recipe years ago. We used to bake a batch up and smother them in butter cream frosting and eat and eat and eat them. Oooh, they were so good. They can be used for cut outs as well but the dough will need to be refrigerated until workable as it is sticky at room temp. I get a lot of compliments and requests for this recipe.
