Angel Sugar Crisp Cookies

Roz Blair


This delicious (and crisp) cookies are part of my yearly Christmas goodies for gift giving.

I've been making these cookies since I was a teenager (which was a long time ago)! I dress them up at Christmas with red and green sugar but you could vary the sugar for any occasion with different colored sugar (or use just good old granulated)! :-)
