Whole Wheat Cookies

An attempt at a healthy cookie, with walnuts and raisins. And Butter Buds.

Butter Buds are a name brand of spray-dried, starch-coated butter extracts that are packaged for both home and industrial use. I’ve actually used Butter Buds and I’ve been impressed at how intense and accurate the flavor is.

But not as impressed as this girl, from their website.

That said, they make an excellent addition to a dredge for fried crawfish tails.
