When my daughter, Katie, was 2, the juicy, ripe raspberries in my backyard inspired me to create this cutout cookie. It's become a mother-daughter tradition to pick the raspberries, choose the cutter shapes, cut out the cookies and frost them. We treasure the hours we’ve shared in the kitchen creating not only delightful cookies, but lasting memories.—Cindy Beberman, Orland Park, Illinois
