Angel Sugar Cookies #TwoSweetiePies

Angel Sugar Cookies | Simple, melt in your mouth sugar cookiesThere was a miserable week back in February when nobody was eating. Katie was fighting a stomach virus, Bill was post op, and we had just lost our sweet pup, Lambeau. We had homemade soups in the fridge to sustain us, but our appetites were lacking. Slowly things improved. And I felt like baking. I turned to Danielle, my sweet blogger friend, for inspiration…and found a recipe for these melt in your mouth Angel Sugar Cookies.

Angel Sugar Cookies (3)

Sweet and crumbly, these gems were perfect with my afternoon tea…or with a big glass of milk. Simple, vanilla flavored sugar cookies, rolled in sugar and pressed flat with a jelly jar glass. Old fashioned and comforting. Just what we needed.
