Everyone should feel ‘special’ and that’s exactly how you are going to feel after I share one of my all time favorite recipes.  I’m inclined to guard it close to my heart, but that would be selfish.  So, as a measure of my trust in each of you to keep this ‘secret’ I will share this fantastic and utterly delicious butter cookie, aka ‘crack’ cookie recipe.  These scrumptious cookies have been part of my life ever since. . . I can’t remember when.  My Aunt Beth was the first to introduce this delightful morsel as she would usually bring them, along with pumpkin pie, to family Thanksgiving dinners.  Since, then I have made them for many an occasion and have received rave reviews!  You’re sure to love them too!
