asyaver 7 months agoI put 2 tablespoons of sugar because once they are rolled in more after baking they become very sweet and the less sweetened cookie part counteracts that nicely giving it good texture.
BethNal 7 months agolove these! I sprinkled with a bit of cinnamon before rolling them in the sugar and it gave them a little more flavor.
leadelhurley 7 months agoI have made these for for over 20 years. My recipe calls for 3 Tablespoons conf sugar. But I'm sure 2 T would work too. Don't make them too big because they get bigger as they bake. They are very rich and always very popular at Christmas.
