should have softened butter first, it did not incorperate, so they flattened a little, we had butter blobs instead of balls. They were very tasty.

My mom gave me a copy of the Make-Ahead Cookie Mix clipped from a magazine many years ago. It came with TEN variations. The Butterball Recipe did not call for brown sugar- perhaps this is why yours spread out and were soft and messy.
