      >Add 1/8 pound melted butter, cooled.

      >TURN PIECES OVER before putting on greased cookie sheet (I use PAM.)

      >Let stand overnight. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for about 12

      >Note from Anabeth's mom: I divide my dough into 5 or six little balls
      >-- find it easier to roll out. Reuse the scraps. I make my dough in
      >the evening and bake in the AM.
