      3/4   c            Unsalted butter -- 1 1/2
                         Stick
    1       c            Sugar
    2       lg           Eggs

   place in the refrigerator until well chilled, at least

   cookie sheet. Using a 1/2 Tablespoon measure, spoon
   out level 1/2 tablespoon of chilled cookie dough onto
   the cookie sheet, placing them 3 apart. Bake for
   about 10 minutes or until the cookies have just
   flattened and are lightly browned around the edges.
   Cool the cookies on racks. Store in a covered tin.
