"This takes some time to prepare, but is well worth the work. I looked years for this recipe for my father-in-law. After many tries, I found the one that reminded him of his grandmother's Christmas cookies."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

2 1/2 teaspoons
semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 1/2 cups
sifted all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons
Better than my mother's recipe. The dough handles very easily, although I had to make a double batch of dough to accomodate all the filling.
double the dough.
This is a great recipe.but I found that there was to much filling for the dough so double the dough recipe I searched for years for this recipe for my mom because her grand mother used to make them but had no written recipe unfortunately my mother passed away before I could make them for her-Now I make them every Christmas for my family and friends I make hundreds of them there is just one thing I change Instead of rolling them in logs I cut out rounds or trees or stars place filling in the center and place another shape on top and crimp edges That was how my mother remembered my great grandmother making them. Then I make a icing glaze and brush the baked and cooled cookies sprinkle with colored Jimmies to make them festive
I have made this twice now, excellent recipe. 4 stars only because I had to make another 1/2 batch of dough. I subbed 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa pwder for the chips-the texture and taste was better for us. These freeze great and taste better the longer they sit
Great recipe. My father is 100% Italian and he said these are just as good as his mothers. I had to double the dough but no bid deal. Also, 8 minutes in my oven was perfect.
a great recipe. I chilled the pasta after it was prepared and easier to work with. the second time I double the pasta recipe as to use the filling. brought back many happy memories. consigliatissimo!!!!
Just like my grandmother from Sicilys recipe. The beauty of this recipe is that you can substitute raisins with currants etc etc. I added a heaping cup of extra strong hot coffee to the recipe.
One problem- I hade to quadruple the dough amount. How thick are you making things.
Also, cucidati is Sicilian for bracelet.
Delicious! The obly thing: It makes double the filling, so you either need to cut the filling in half or make double the dough. Thanks for a great recipie!
