Angel Sugar Crisps

Really excited to be participating in #ChristmasSweetsWeek 2019!  If there's one thing that I know that my guys will always enjoy, it's holiday goodies.  I'm kicking things off with a cookie that's become an instant family favorite, Angel Sugar Crisps.

I found this recipe on the Taste of Home website, and only made a few small changes.  First up, I used a cookie scoop to form the balls. I just find it so much easier than doing it freehand, and consistent cookies always bake much better.

I rolled my cookies in raw sugar, but you can also use granulated or colored sugars.  Based on the size of my scoop, I got 30 cookies, and they took about 10 minutes to bake. The crunchy, sparkly sugar outside and the delicious vanilla flavor will make these the perfect addition to your holiday cookie trays. Thanks so much to Annabel C. for sharing her recipe!

authorHello, my name is Cherine, but you can call me "Chicho" :) I am Lebanese and I live in Paris. Welcome to my internet kitchen, grab a cup of coffee, a macaron and get comfy! This blog is my recipe journal. It's where I write about the recipes that intersect my everyday life. Often the recipes are from my cookbook collection, my magazines, my favorite blogs... sometimes not, they might come from my mother, a friend, a neighbour... or I might write about a recipe I invented myself.
