Easy Drop Cookies


"My mother made these all year round, she would just change the color of sugar in which they were dipped. Consider putting a small amount of powdered drink mix (e.g..

This is a great recipe! I added 1 pkg of Lemon Pudding and a 1 tsp of real Lemon Juice and Voila! Great cookies! Oh yeah, sprinkled them with powdered sgar too!

These cookies are fantastic! They are light with crispy edges and soft centers. They aren't too sweet and have a delicate flavor, perfect for icing or eating plain! The only adjustments I made w...
