I 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.

love these! I sprinkled with a bit of cinnamon before rolling them in the sugar and it gave them a little more flavor.

I 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.
