Notes: If you would like to make cookies from this, allow the mixture to chill overnight in the fridge.  Proceed by rolling 1 tablespoon of dough into a ball, then into a small bowl of powdered sugar to coat. Bake 10 cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes. Keep extra dough in the fridge while baking your first batch.
