Okay, I am just dying for a treat now! These really are great cookies, their one of my favorites when I have to take treats for the church kids. And they gobble them right up. Glad to hear it has dried out (unfortunately before the snow fight!). Take care.

These sound so good!! I will try to make these this weekend. Should I use unsalted or salted butter? I try to not use salted butter for my husband. Will there be a huge difference in taste?

Hi mykidsmom! These are my hubby's favorite. We are now under a winter storm warning. Expecting between 1-4 inches for our part of the state! Yahoooooo!

Hi Melinda! I use regular (salted) butter. I'm sure you could adjust it to unsalted though. I'm not sure about the taste difference. Let us know how they turn out!
