For a few years now, friends of mine who live in another part of the country have gotten together for an annual cookie exchange. I have hoped every year to be able to make it, but let’s face it, it’s not easy to get to another part of the country right before the holidays. At least, it hasn’t been easy for me.
These empire cookies are a big hit at this exchange every year. Made by my friend Ellen, they are always very popular. This year, I asked Ellen if I could make this recipe and share it with all of you. Being the kind, generous person that she is, Ellen of course said yes.
