Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The Kitchen Crew is plain nutty for these little guys! We had to hold my grandson - an Honorary Crew Member - back before he ate the whole first batch! Now that's the ultimate endorsement.

    These do sound terrific. Do you think butter would work? I really do not like to use margarine.

    I have used butter and I really liked them. My Mother in law thinks margarine works better. But I like butter too. I just melt the butter and then let it cool. Make sure you add as I said in the directions. Sometimes it seems softer than other times. I add the crumbs a little at a time and mix well until it makes good balls.

    I love making these, I've been using real butter and store bought generic sugar cookies in mine. They are super rich and buttery
