Fluffy, mouth watering, worth the calories. I have been cooking these cookies for about 9 years now. I bring them to christmas parties and yet to come home with any leftover. Need I say more. Hope those who try them enjoy them as much as my friends, family, and co-workers have.

  1. With and Electric mixer, beat butter & Icing sugar until it stands up like egg whites.
