"If you love the flavor of butter and love cookies, then combine them for the absolute best buttery butter cookies.. hey, have I ever let you down in the past?... trust me these really are a butter bomb, the most perfect texture and they take very little time to make. For the perfect round shape, roll them between your palms before dropping onto the baking sheet, then press with bottom of a glass. I should mention if you leave the baked cookies out overnight they taste even better! Can roll in sugar before baking if you like."
