This is a light buttery cookie that I enjoy. I belive the recipe originated from the book "Favorite Homemade Cookies and Candies." They can be a little messy when forming into balls, but I think they're worth it.

Fantastic cookie, exactly how I like it! Not too sweet and pleasantly crisp, easy to put together - just perfect. No mess at all forming the balls. Made them gluten free, and they baked 20 minutes.
Thanks for sharing this!
Made for Bargain Basement December 2010.
