I live in Missouri, but many of my "family tradition" recipes come from New Zealand. My parents moved there when I was 1, and that's when I grew up, so some have a "Down Under" heritage. These special-occasion cookies bring back warm memories of my childhood, and I'm going to make sure they're passed on to the next generation in my family...no matter where they live!

They're even richer with a thin coat of icing or as a sandwich cookie with frosting in the middle. -Sarah Bueckert, Austin, Manitoba
