Noel cookies

Years back there was a type of store boxed cookie that came out around Christmas time. It had a slight anise flavor and came in a white box. They were in shapes of Christmas trees,ornaments. I remember waiting for them. I don't remember what company made them. Anyone else remember what I am talking about?

Those cookies look good OSis but the ones I am talking about were inexpensive, on the shelf cookies. I think the last time I saw them was sometime in the 80's

I buy some from Salerno called Santa's Favorites. They are brown though, and have green and red sugar on top and they are anise flavored. The same company does have some that are white, but those are crescent cookies - loaded in powder sugar.

That sounds like them The cookie is brown with red and green sugar. Is Salerno the brand? I tried to google it but didn't come up with anything to do with cookies.

I did find a site that carries that brand. My computer however will not open the page. I will have to wait until I get to work on Monday to try it.

Thanks for the tip. I believe those are it!!!
