I found this recipe in this pregnancy cookbook, and I honestly wasn't expecting them to be as good as they are. They have a great flavour and texture, and come together really quickly. Next time, I think I'll add some orange and lemon zest for a little extra somethin'-somethin'...and by the look of our cookie jar, next time will be very soon!
7 Tblsp butter, softened
6 Tblsp white sugar
