"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Directions:
Mix all together. ***Refrigerate overnight; form into balls. Place on un-greased cookie sheet and flatten with a glass dipped in sugar. Bake at 325 to 350 degrees for 12 to 15 min. (I normally skip the refrigerating and shaping into balls - simply drop the dough by teaspoonfuls onto the cookie sheet. The flattened cookies arenít quite as uniform in shape, but cookies are still great!

Personal Notes:
This original recipe came from a church cookbook through my sister, Carol Musick. These are melt-in-your-mouth good! I entered them in the Cow Town Country Fair and won 3rd prize in the cookie division.
