Butter Crunch Cookies


These cookies were finalists in the LVRJ's annual cookie contest. They reminded me of a cookie I loved at the Yum Yum Bakery in Boston.

1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 t. salt

Preheat oven to 350. Brown 1/3 cup sugar in small frying pan until liquid. Pour onto greased cookie sheet. Let cool.

Cream butter, 3/4 cup sugar, flour and salt.

Place cooled sugar between waxed paper and break with hammer. Add dough mixture. Drop by 1/2 teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten with glass dipped in flour until about 1/8" thick. Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Makes about 3.5 dozen.
