   Recipe by: Three Rivers Cookbook III
        Cream butter, salt and sugar together.  Mix in vanilla. Add flour and
   mix well.  Mixture will be dry. Roll into small balls the size of a walnut.
   Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 300 degrees for 25 minutes. Do
   not brown.  Cool completely before frosting.
        Frosting: Melt butter and chocolate in a saucepan. Add sugar and
   cream.  Boil for 1 minute.  Remove form heat.
    Beat until thick enough to stick to cookie.  Dip the top of each cookie
   into frosting and return to cookie    sheet or wire rack to set until
   frosting is firm.  If frosting gets too hard to dip into, add a few drops
   of cream.
