Vanilla and Mocha Angel Wings
- Servings: 3-1/2 to 4 dozen cookies
- Course: Dessert
Chocolate and vanilla contrast in these two versions of angel wing cookies. The two make a welcome duet on a special-occasion cookie tray. Or mix and bake to keep on hand for a treat to have with a cup of tea. Cookie making is easier with parchment paper. When baked on parchment paper, cookies bake more evenly and slide off without breaking. Or, slide the cookies with parchment paper off onto a large wire rack to cool. Dust them right on the parchment paper for easy cleanup. After removing the cookies, just toss the parchment paper.
