    Rub the butter into the dry ingredients until mixture is fine like breadcrumbs. Set the bowl aside and take out another clean bowl.

    Pile large tablespoon size cookie dough balls onto a greased cookie sheet. Set them about 1.2 cm (1/2 inch) apart on the sheet. Bake them in a hot 176 degrees C (350 degrees F) oven for about 20 to 25 minutes. Let them cool completely, and then place them in an airtight container for storage.
