Thank you SO much, C. Davis! This past Christmas, I wanted to make my Italian grandmother's cookies. I always called them her "Italian cookies." She passed away years ago and my mother passed in 2007. I thought my mother had the recipe in her collection, but she didn't. My aunt also didn't have the recipe although she said she'd look. Meanwhile, I did a search here just for the heck of it and found yours. Quick summary: I replaced the vanilla with anise and mixed a little milk with confectioner's sugar and a drop of anise for a glaze. On Christmas, I gave one immediately to my aunt for a "taste test." Her eyes got really big as she said, "You did it! That's the recipe!" Both her and my brother said how good they tasted! Also: for those wondering, this type of cookie is not supposed to be sweet. It's perfect with a cup of good coffee. These were fabulous and they brought back many happy memories. Thank you!
