  • 1 tsp vanilla

  6. Bake cookies for 7-10 minutes until bottoms are just slightly brown and the tops are no longer glossy.
  7. Remove from oven and cool for 5-10 minutes, until you can handle them.
  8. Fill a small bowl with 1 cup powdered sugar and roll each cookie in the sugar until coated. Place on a rack to cool.
  9. Once cookies have cooled, you may want to re-roll them in more powdered sugar.
