Angel Cookies

"I adopted this recipe and when I finally got around to making it I was very impressed! My roomates devoured these cookies and described them as a cross between short bread and sugar cookies. They have a very light taste but are a crispier cookies. A great treat!"

    These are really good cookies. They remind me much more of sugar cookies than shortbread however. I got closer to 6 dozen as I rolled the dough into about 1 inch balls before pressing with the fork. The brown sugar adds a bit more depth than your regular sugar cookie. A nice little change up from the ordinary.

    I agree with the first poster - very similar to sugar cookies but with a brown sugar variation. Cookies are soft & chewy or nice & crunchy depending on your bake time. This is a great little recipe for a quick snack using very common ingredients!

    These are a heavenly little take on sugar cookies.


I like baking fun treats way more than cooking an actual meal! My favorite things to make are muffins, cookies and pancakes. Since joining Zaar I've been making awesome meals. I can't believe I'm marinating and grilling and cooking like never before! My rating system: ***** - Fabulous! I loved it, everyone here loved it, and we can't wait to make it again! A keeper and a recipe I'd recommend. **** - Nice recipe! 'Good' as opposed to 'great', but still worth making again! *** - Not so hot. We didn't love it, but maybe it was just because of our palates. Won't make again, but not because there was something wrong with the recipe. ** - Disappointing. Something's not right, or turned out really bad or hardly edible. * - Does this recipe need to be proof read? I think something was missing or there was a typo because this recipe is totally un-useable. I participated in: <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> and <img src="" alt="Image hosted by">
