Scoop out dough using a small cookie scoop into 1 1/2" balls, placed on a lined baking sheet about 2" apart. Sprinkle each ball of dough generously with sugar.

This recipe will remind you of days past where things were more old fashioned. My grandma enjoyed having tea and cookies with her neighbors. We need to do more of that!
