These sandwich cookies taste rich and buttery and have a lovely lemon filling. The recipe has been in our family since the 1950s, when my mother got it from a French friend in her club. Mom always made them at Christmas, and now my sister and I do the same.
"This delicious fruit-and nut-packed cookie recipe was my mother's, and it has been one of my mother's, and it has been one of my favorites for many years," offers Sharon Crider from Junction City, Kansas
Cookies that melt in your mouth and are practically fat-free—is it any wonder these crispy meringue morsels disappear as fast as I can whip them up? Friends and family love them. —Jo Ann Blomquest, Freeport, Illinois
"I make these anytime I have to take cookies to a potluck supper or other event," writes Elaine Fortner of Princeton, Indiana. "We have plenty to take along...plus enough to fill the cookie jar, too. They're also good using white cake mix, but chocolate is my favorite."
“My grandchildren love these sugar cookies.” These crisp cookies will melt in your mouth. Their subtle macadamia nut, cinnamon and orange peel flavors go perfectly together.

My mom has always known that homemade cookies have a special appeal that can't be duplicated by the store-brought variety. Even today, she keeps us grownup kids well stocked with fresh-from-the-oven treats such as this tender shortbread.
