Piped-on frosting made my cookies into vivid mini-quilt blocks for a sweet ending to the theme luncheon. My friends appreciated the fact that even the food reflected our mutual love of quilting.

This recipe has been in the family for four generations. When I got married, Mom made sure to pass this recipe along. For variation, I sometimes eliminate the raisins and sprinkle the tops with colored sugar or leave them plain and frost when cooled.
