Recipe by Petdrwife

I found this recipe years ago and it is still a big hit with the family and with cookie exchanges at Christmastime.

I really liked that this was a butter not the regular shortening recipe. I followed the recipe exactly and found the cooking time a bit too long. I also had way more kisses left over even though I made really small balls. Next time I'll try doubling the dough and cooking 6 min instead. Still a good recipe.
