You may or may not have ever heard of an empire cookie, but let me just say you need these in your life at least once a year… probably more. Of course, the best time of year would be Christmas! These are total grandma cookies. Just classic and clean. Nothing over the top or gluttonous. They’re a Scottish cookie (or biscuit) and I think they’re rather sophisticated. I actually ate hoards of these as a kid on Christmas Day… because I was a sophisticated child, duh. My grandma used to make them every year but truthfully… these are better!
