Angel Cookies

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Zephs Wife

Just cut the recipe out of our local paper, so I haven't tried them yet. Different from the other Angel cookies here as this one has powdered sugar. Looks easy with a short ingredient list. Time includes the 30 min. refrigerator time, also don't know how to put the servings correctly but it says it makes 6 doz. so I put 72 servings.

Every Christmas MIL buys these cookies from a local bakery and this year our dog sitter tasted them and wanted the recipe because she enjoyed them so much. We searched for about 1/2 an hour for just the right recipe and this is it. Only thing different I did was make the cookies bigger so they needed to cook longer. Oh, I also cut the recipe down to 2 dozen instead of 6 dozen. But my DH said I hit the nail on the head. Hope you enjoy them too.
