    C & D's Mommy's Note:

    My mom says they're butter cookies, but me and my dad, (and now my husband and kids) call them Green Acre Cookies. Do not substitue the butter for margarine!! I even adapted these to offer my diabetic brother a few of these treats at Christmas time by substituting the sugar for equal amounts of Splenda. (I'll admit, it's not the same, but at least my bro' can eat em!) This is a very fun recipe to make with the kids. I get mine to do the decorating with sprinkles before cooking. There's nothing more fun than eating a Green Acre Cookie coated in about half a bottle of green or red sprinkles! MMMM.....(that's my C & D!) These freeze well in a canister so make them ahead as part of your holiday baking. But be warned....don't tell your family which canister they're in. Come the holidays, you'll open the canister, and it's empty!! (yes, this has happened to me!) *this recipe doubles, (triples quadruples, etc.) well.
