Sugar Gems

Another stellar recipe from The Sister’s Cafe – these cookies are delicious!

A yummy alternative to traditional sugar cookies, these are easier because you don’t have to roll out the dough and cut out with cookie cutters.

You simply roll into balls and flatten with a glass and sugar.

The texture is soft and melts in your mouth.

These are fantastic with or without frosting. Yum!
