This is a wonderful recipe!Very light melt-in-the- mouth cookies. I couldn't find the dry butter in the grocery store. I was able to purchase it for $16.95 per pound on It was pricey but only a little is needed for each recipe, and it is well worth the price. I used cookie stamps to imprint each cookie but a flat bottom glass works as well. I followed the recipe exactly.
