    Baby Chevelle's Note:

    This is a recipe from the Blue Owl Restaurant and Bakery in Kimmswick, Missouri. Kimmswick is an historic town. This restaurant has even been featured on the Food Network. When I saw this recipe I couldn't wait to try it, so I did, it was delicious !!! I had so much faith in this recipe that I doubled it on the first try, and I am glad I did, they flew out of here with the family. The owner of the restaurant says this is a favorite and bestseller for them. I am sure you will enjoy it, this is one of the easiest recipes I have ever made, but it is one of the best ! Tastes like a Gooey Butter Cake!! I myself used parchment paper which made the cookies thicker and gooeyier if there is such a word LOL Prep time includes 30 min refrigeration.

      Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shape dough into 1 inch balls; roll in powdered sugar. Place about 1 1/2 inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet, or you may use parchment paper. With the parchment paper they will not spread as much. Bake 12 minutes, DO NOT let cookies brown!

      These cookies are to die for! Im originally from St Louis and these are a little taste of home. Thanks for posting this awesome recipe. I doubled the recipe and used a small scoop to measure out the cookies. It made 38 cookies.

      All of my family loved these! My husband loves a soft cookie and this is it. We have been to the Blue Owl and had a wonderful dessert there, but didn't try these cookies. I am trying them today with lemon. I ended up with 3 dozen instead of 4, but they were the perfect size. I make my cookies on stoneware so I did not need parchment paper.
