This cookie debuted on our family holiday cookie trays this past year and quickly became one of my favorites. Mom sent me her recipe and I’m putting it here for safe keeping. The cookie is labor intensive and not recommended for busy or new chefs. That said the results are both beautiful and delicious. Would be great for a special occassion or dinner party served with a fruit sorbet. (Preparation does not include 1 hour chilling time.)
