When my Mom-mom Scobey baked these wonderful buttery-sweet cookies, I was
always on my best behavior! Enjoy them as they are or add M&MsŪ, butterscotch
chips, chocolate chips, raisins or nuts to the batter; sprinkle colored sugar or
"sprinkles" on top; or just let your imagination go wild. Enjoy with a
glass of cold milk or do as I do... go dunking!
