Well your on my list of greats!
Does anyone have a recipe for a real butter drop cookie? I love those land a lakes butter cookies with the dab of icing on top ! They come in the bag that looks like the land of lakes stick butter carton. They just melt in your mouth. But then again I love real butter !

Ok, here's the land o' lakes recipe...

Cookie Ingredients:

1 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

Decorations Ingredients:

Decorator sugars

Combine 1 cup butter, sugar and egg in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add orange juice and vanilla; mix well. Reduce speed to low; add flour and baking powder. Beat until well mixed.

Divide dough into thirds; wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate until firm (2 to 3 hours).

Heat oven to 400°F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-third at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8- to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 3-inch cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets; sprinkle with decorator sugar. Bake for 6 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.
