I love topping my cookies with something. Sometimes it’s a crack of sea salt, powdered sugar, icing or in this case, I’m doubling up! They’re rolled in powdered sugar just before baking and topped with an apple cider glaze when they come out of the oven. It hardens to perfection and really turns these cookies into something special!
