Small and delicate, the butter cookies at Stella’s Bakery look like paper cutouts. Take your pick: The crescent-shaped Greek kourambies, the three-eyed rounds with raspberry jam poking through the holes, or any of the cookies filled with chocolate, hazelnut or jam make for an impressive gathering. Great with tea, they taste as good as they look.
