I found this a very easy cookie to prepare .. I am not the best baker, so if it works for me it must be good! Less sweet than I would expect, but DH said it was perfect, and he particularly likes the crispness of these bite-size nibbles.
Thank you Lynn, a lovely tea-time treat, made for PRMR tag game.

I made only one change by accident and that was I added the extra 1/2 cup of sugar in the mix. I still rolled it in sugar but let me say... This was easy and YUMMY!! My son's class will enjoy them for his Country (Portugal) Project.
