Angelettis Recipe from our Top 10 Favorite Holiday Cookies article.






  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 lb. confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • colored sugar for decorating



Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line baking pans with parchment paper and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. Using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating on medium speed. Add the vanilla and blend well. With the mixer running, gradually add the flour mixture and beat until the dough comes together. Shape the dough into. balls and place on the parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden-brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

While the cookies are baking, combine the confectioners’ sugar, lemon juice and 2 Tbsp. of water. Once the cookies have cooled, ice, then sprinkle them with the colored sugar. Let cookies rest until the icing is firm.
