These cookies are soft and delicate. Sweet and tart. They are so perfect for the summertime. Light and refreshing. Like a big glass of lemonade in cookie-form. The buttercream frosting hardens and then you are able to store them in a container, one on top of the other.
A couple of weeks ago I made my grandmothers raisin cookies, and it got me thinking about my childhood, and how there was nothing I loved more than holiday cookies. My grandmother used to do most of the baking, and it's about time that I continued that tradition.
