  • Melt remaining butter.
  • Drizzle about 1.5 tbsp melted butter over balls; sprinkle with 2 tbsps remaining sugar.
  • Repeat layers twice.
  • Cover tightly with plastic wrap; refrigerate 2 hours.
  • Remove from refrigerator; uncover dough and let stand 10 minutes.
  • Bake at 375 degrees F for 40 minutes or until done, covering with foil after 30 minutes to prevent excess browning.
