Angel Sugar Cookies are Heavenly

So, please forgive our silly post title, but the statement is true.

This is another recipe we wish we would have made sooner because they are melt-in-your-mouth delicious. We made The Pioneer Woman's Angel Sugar Cookies (p. 236) several weeks ago.

We combined granulated sugar and powdered sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla.

Next, we added the dry ingredients of flour, salt, baking soda and cream of tartar. The entire mixture was then refrigerated for about an hour.

We spooned the dough onto the cookie sheet. We used a teaspoon-sized spoon.

Next, we buttered the bottom of the glass and stamped the glass into a bowl of granulated sugar.

With the sugared glass, we gently flattened each cookie. In between each cookie, we did re-sugar the glass.

We baked these for approximately 12 minutes. Ree warns that these cookies are not good travelers, as they are quite crumbly. These really don't finish baking with dimples, as seen below. Those are compliments of The Bean's fingers.

These are the less-dense cousin of the classic Christmas sugar cookie, much like Jo is to Lou.

The end.

Happily full,
