My grandmother kept house for a wealthy family in town by the name of Beecher. This was the missus’ favorite cookie and the only thing she would make on her own, my grandma did the rest of the cooking.
We always used margarine for this so I don’t know if butter works in it or not. I don’t know why it wouldn’t. I included it in the candy section because it is cooked on top of the stove and has no flour in it.
