We rolled these in finely ground pecans. They were lovely!! Great butter flavor! Very easy recipe. I got 38 cookies out of this. I will make some more of these at Christmas. Thanks Shari!!
This recipe makes lovely little cookies. I halved the recipe and rolled half in sugar and the rest in crushed pecans. I go 64 cookies out of the halved mix...though I did make them quite small. Thanks Shari2.
I really like this recipe! It is very buttery! I was surprised there were only 4 ingredients! We cut the recipe in half since just hubby and I. I found the best way to mix in the flour is with your hand. We rolled into 24 balls then dipped the bottom of a glass in water and flattened. Baked 15 minutes. We didn't use nuts or coconut...we frosted. Yummy! This is a great recipe for the "I feel like cutout cookies but not the hassle"...Thanks Shari2!
