FOUR DIAMANT: Diamond Cookies  
World Traditional Recipe フランス

French style cookies. “Diamant” means diamond in French. Being covered with sparkling sugar granules, the cookies present an image of twinkling diamonds. We use granulated sugar in this recipe, but traditionally, coarser sugar is used for these types of cookies. If available, use coarser sugar to make the cookies look more sparkling.
