Now that Thanksgiving is out of the way it's time to make holiday cookies for whatever holiday you might be celebrating. Angeletti are easy to make--kids can mix these successfully--and not too sweet.

angeletti 1Angeletti

½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
¼ cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
2 cups confectioner's sugar
¼ cup plus 1½ teaspoons water

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Mix the butter, sugar, milk, vanilla, and eggs until blended. Mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt, then stir into the egg mixture. Cover with a towel and let sit for 5 minutes.

Lightly flour your hands and form the dough into 1-inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on cookies sheets. Bake until puffed and light brown on the bottom, 7-10 minutes.

When the cookies are cool, whisk together the confectioner's sugar and water, or make another glaze of your choice. Dip each cookie into the glaze and sprinkle with some form of decoration if you wish. Makes about 60 cookies.
