These are more of a special occasion treat than an everyday cookie. Also, these are probably more for older tastes than for kids. (A big hit with adults at a recent engagement party.) Don't be scared that it looks like a lot of work - they really aren't that bad! You will need a 5.5cm round cookie cutter. Australian measurements used. Taken from Australian Women's Weekly: Cookies.
