Also among the "treasures" at our pirate theme party were these yummy soft cookies. They have a mellow honey-lemon flavor and a vibrant almond icing. For a fun Polynesian look, I used pineapple and palm tree cookie cutters to shape them.
My grandmother always had sugar cookies in her pantry, and I now regularly bake these wonderful cookies to share with friends. We grandchildren would empty that big jar quickly because those cookies were the best! —Evelyn Poteet, Hancock, Maryland
