Recipe by JillAZ
This is a great way to make a quick treat. This dough freezes very well. I find these don't work as well for cut out cookies. The dough is pretty soft. This came from a 30 day gourmet ebook. Cooking time is per sheet.

I made these yesterday to take to my kids school, which is a good thing because I could have eaten them all. I did roll them in sugar I like mine a little sweeter. I also dipped the tops of the balls in chopped pecans mixed with sugar. Awesome recipe! Thanks so much for posting, I will be making these again next week!
