Whoops, I didn't actually ask the questions! I just made these cookies for the first time today, and there is no question but that they are keepers. I love their crispness and both the vanilla and the rooibos.

But while they are on my mind, I had a few questions. For one, why the 1/4 cup plus one tbs sugar? I would guess from what I'm tasting that 1/4 would be enough. And why the powdered sugar? I always feel like I can taste a bit of off flavoring when powdered sugar is in a baked good. Is it included for texture? Could a little cornstarch or potato starch be a partial substitute. And finally, the teeny bit of milk--is that really needed? Did you just feel you needed a little moisture, and would a little water be just as appropriate? Thanks, they are absolutely delicious, but I know you've given the recipe a lot of thought and wanted to come along for the ride.
