A favorite of our family and undoubtedly anyone’s who has ever tasted one!
These delightfully delicious cookies rolled in powdered sugar when warm are so, well, delicious.
Bet you can’t eat just one!
My teen daughter who loves to bake and her younger visiting cousin made these for us. On Christmas morning while opening gifts, Sandies are a perfect festive touch to our simple breakfast of warmed croissants, jellies, cheeses, ham slices, juice, coffee and hot chocolate.
It is a quick easy to make cookie recipe with lots of star power for any occasion including” just because” they are so delicious!
