    I am very fussy about cookies! I find the US cookies so disappointing and am searching for recipes to approximate the best cookies we used to have in South Africa. Usually I find Aussie and British recipes are more suited to my tastes (basically, any place where a cookie is called a "biscuit" seems to work for me). I don't like chewy cookies at all. I also can't tolerate choc-chip and peanut butter cookies which everyone seems to like. Always #1 on my wishlist for goodies from SA are Royal Creams. I get all wistful and nostalgic thinking about it If you have any SA cookie recipes that are not in my cookbook, please let me know.

    You will not find a better sugar cookie anywhere you search, this will most likely be the only sugar cookie you will use, not only are these cookies buttery delicious, the dough is an absolute dream to work with, it rolls out easily and is easy to handle, also the cookies hold their shape when baked something many sugar cookies do not do --- make as many different colors as desired in separate bowls with the icing, the cookies must be completely cooled before icing --- plan ahead the dough must be chilled for at least 2 hours before rolling -- since these are topped with icing they are not a sweet cookie if you want a sweeter taste then increase the sugar amount

    Recipe #261889

    Posting for Fairy Nuff to have a look at. These are a very popular biscuit (cookie) in Australia, and this tastes pretty much like the bought variety.

    Recipe #112341

    Yum - Monte Carlo's - another Aussie biscuit/cookie to bake at home.

    There seems to be 2 types of biscuits/cookies that go under this name. These are the Australian version, old-fashioned meltingly soft buttery shortbreads sandwiched together with a butter icing. This recipe came from Super Food Ideas, and it is perfect.

    Recipe #109894

    This recipe has been in our family since I was a girl,it's a favorite of every household here "Down Under". My Mother made them and my grandmother too! It was a favorite with the armed forces in first world war that is why they are called Anzac Biscuits. Everyone has a different version, with added ingredients or omitting some ingredients.

    Recipe #9527

    An easy and quick mix biscuit (cookie) dough to make. You can use 3 teaspoons of ginger powder instead of 3 teaspoons of cinnamon powder. These biscuits (cookies) are great dunking biscuits. The bicuits (cookies) do have a bit of crunch in them.

    This recipe is from the premier issue of Taste of Home. When I first tried these I had only used whole wheat flour in breads. This is now my most requested cookie recipe. They are without a doubt my kids' favorite.

    This is an adopted recipe that I haven't yet tried. The original chef comments: "My cousin JoAnn makes cookies better than anyone I know. (I'll bet even better than you!) When she comes to visit, she always brings a giant tupperware container full of freshly baked cookies. These are my favorite!"

    This is my Signature Recipe. The melt-in-your-mouth texture of these Christmas cookies is wonderful, and the food processor makes it easy. They freeze well too.

    Recipe #14059

    This cookie recipe is by Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa. The cookie dough is rolled into balls, dipped in an egg wash and rolled in coconut. A thumb print is made and jam is put in the center to make a festive holiday or any day cookie. The browned coconut makes for a wonderful presentation.

    Recipe #107936

    My ex M-I-L had this recipe scribbled on the flyleaf of one of her family cookbooks and no one knew what it was, one year we made it and it was her mom's infamous shortbread cookies. I thought I'd lost the recipe when I divorced, but I found it online (with food processor instructions no less!) and wanted to share. I like bigger cookies so I don't get as many out of the recipe, some friends can get 5 dozen out of theirs. Prep time includes chilling, and it can vary.

    Recipe #106669

    These are a coarse-grained cookie soaked in a honey syrup (the semolina achieves this), popular throughout Greece during the Christmas Holidays. They are wonderful and are THE recipe that makes my house smell like Christmas - orange peel and cloves and cinnamon. The most unbelievable perfume wafts through the house for a couple of days after baking!

    Recipe #76498

    Sugar and spice and all things nice! These crispy, crunchy, golden biscuits (cookies) are SO easy to make and taste delicious! The recipe was published in the 'New Idea' (an Australian women's magazine), during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games - hence the name. I have, as usual, made some minor changes to the recipe.

    This is a unique family recipe that is originally from my great, great aunt. I have not tried it, but submitted it in response to a request. I'm sorry I don't know the serving size or exactly how long it takes to bake!

    Recipe #84216

    These are my favorite cheesecake squares so far, but I won't stop looking for more.

    Recipe #82109

    I received this as part of a Christmas Bake Exchange. These look so pretty on a cookie platter.

    Recipe #106195

    These are very easy to make shortbread cookies. They are so good that they melt in your mouth, you hardly have to chew them. I have been making them for over 35 years.

    Recipe #46877

    A sandwiched biscuit/cookie recipe originally from South Africa. Depending on how you shape it, it's as good for weddings as it is as an everyday cookie recipe... and relatively easy to make. NOTE: Please don't follow the cooking/prep time and serving, I just guessed on that, sorry :(
