Butter Dream Cookie

I first had these cookies at a party I was catering for a family member. Their long time friend brought them and I couldn’t eat enough of them. She shared her recipe with me and there are several other versions on the Internet. This version is one I have adapted from the original, these are delicious but they are never quite as good as the first ones I had.
