    I was wondering about the amount of sugar back at the beginning. This looks easy and yummy. Do you serve it with any kind of dipping sauce?

    hai mrsmerwin. You can take 1/3 cup of sugar for 2 cups flour. If you want more sweet you can add little more or at last just sprinkle powdered sugar if needed. They taste good even without sugar. You can just have them as it is as snack without any sauce.
