The leaf cookies are French Butter cookies and are pressed into a mold to get the leaf shape....Wilton makes the molds and come in  many different shapes but time consuming to make...

And I thought I was the only one who has endlessly been searching for this type of recipe!  I do have a good Italian butter cookie recipe courtesy of AllRecipes.com (here's the recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/9969/finger-sandwich-butter-cookies/), but it is NOT like the bakery cookies I think you're talking about. I would love to find the recipe you're describing because I think it's the basis for what's called a "champagne cookie" in the Italian bakeries in the North End/Boston area - usually two or three colors of dough rolled together into a round cookie that's got colored sprinkles/jimmies on the outside (would love to make a batch for myself!).

The other recipe I'm trying to find is for a lemon cookie that's sold by a truck (aka the Torrone Guy) that is at every St. Anthony's Feast. The cookie is labeled "angietti" but is a consistency more like a sesame regina, not a puffy cakey cookie.

Does anyone have a "tried and true" recipe for "Bakery Style" sand cookies? I am looking for a recipe described similar to this one(see original recipe). The cookie has a crumbly chaulky texture, that melts in your mouth. There is no butter taste, just vanilla flavored. If anyone has a recipe for this type of cookie, PLEASE post.

THANKS!!!!
