True. Not every cookie must be overly sweet, but those cookies are completely tasteless! I had to make a hot chocolate deep and that kind of saved the situation, but I will never make them again.

I made these for a quick family get together, and they all loved them. I am going to make them again for Christmas.

My youngest daughter and I LOVE these cookies. They are perfection with coffee or tea. Not everyone wants a sweet tasting cookie all the time; these are just sweet enough for us. :)

After reading the reviews, I increased the sugar to 1/3 c. and they were good. My favorite Christmas cookie is made with sour cream. They are T of H Angel cookies. Work the extra work. Everybody loves them

I have been making these since I saw then in the magazine -13 years. I only make two cookies for the holidays- these are one of them. Easy to make, friends and family look forward to them each year.

I have to agree with momsmrf. I too used the recipe from the T.O.H. magazine and wish I had looked it up on the web site to see the reviews before making these. Won't make them again.

I thought these were quite bland. If not for the powdered sugar, they wouldn't have much flavor. While assembling the ingredients I wondered if the "1 Tablespoon Sugar" was correct. I used an old recipe I had clipped from the T of H magazine and I see that the recipe online is the same.

That's ok! Not every recipe is for every person. Back to the drawing board, right?

I understand that as I am Hungarian and we have several cookies that are not "sweet" but these were just flavorless. When I make my grandmother's recipe for similar cookies you don't really need the powdered sugar as they are just sweet enough...sorry but these were just bad (in my opinion).
