we used to have them for our birthday parties - the icing was so almost shellaced on - i believe we spent hours just playing with them because they were so fun and fanciful

"playday "cookies????

i'm trying to remember these cookies when i was young in the 1960s or maybe it was the 70s. they were store bought- if memory serves me right,(quite often not), they were about 2 inch diameter and coated with a hard icing and sometype of small doodle picture in the center. there was a palette of colours. does anyone remember???
