Notes: Yummy in the sun, and look at the picture! It’s the perfect round cookie! How rare that is at home! These were pretty amazing, and I once again need some sweetness, so white chocolate is ideal! These are pretty quick to make, a one bowl treat, and can be made in the morning, chilled all day, and baked at will. I must admit I didn’t share many of these and ate them with a big ol glass of milk! If you want a softer cookie, sub half of the butter for shortening.
