When I make these, I take 2 or 3 apart before rolling them in confectioners’ sugar. I love them even better when they’re less sweet, heheheh.

Vero Yorkie says:

When I made these years ago I would place a cookie, one at a time, inside a ‘zip lock’ bag filled with confectionary sugar and gently rolled them around untill they were coated with the sugar… it worked out very well …I then removed them with a fork and placed them on “small (mini) baking cups” (Cup cake paper cups) directly to cool the rest of the way.
They look so pretty and are ready to serve or package for gift giving!

What a lovely student. Say, gimme a few years and let me be your teacher just so I can hear that lovely nickname fill the room.

Nate Lawrence says:

I wonder what happens when one switches the amounts of confectioner’s sugar and flour…

Sadly, probably a sticky mess.

Joy of Baking says:

I don’t really have a preference. It depends more on my mood which one I make.
