* a note on the amount of butter in this recipe- Inspired by Cat trying to cut back on diet soda- I've been trying cut back on butter. Normally these cookies are made with a stick and a half of butter. Now I don't see the problem with 1 Tbsp of butter per cookie but since I'm trying to curb my butter addiction I thought I would make these cookies a little more healthy. (Both Jan and I agree that while they are good this way, they are better with more butter.) So however you choose to make them enjoy!
