Karen, thanks for posting these! Three toddlers & I made these this afternoon. They came out yummy, the girls had fun & I actually ended up w/about 4 1/2 doz. I know I'll be making this again. My only concern is the butter- am I using 1/2 cup which = 1 stick of butter/margarine? or more?
Thanks again! Gail
