There are two types of cookie lovers. Those who love perfectly neat, tidy, often decorated cookies, and those who like cookies in any form, even if they look like tiny trash heaps. This cookie gift is for the former.
The Japanese are known for many culinary delights, including sushi, soba, and skewers. But who knew they were such fans of butter cookies? And these are fussy butter cookies as only the exacting Japanese can manufacture. Uniform, elegant and perfect, the cookies also beat the pants off the traditional "butter cookies" you get every year in that eponymous Danish blue tin.
Order them for your uptight cookie fan, along with a tea cup or two and maybe some tea. All can be found at that tower of exactitude, www.takashimayany.com.
