I was so excited to see this recipe and read the wonderful reviews, I followed it to the letter and in my opinion they are sorely lacking in flavor. Yes the texture is cakelike which is nice but there is no taste. I wanted to test prior to making for Easter. After being so disapointed in the first batch, i thought maybe if i add some anise or lemon extract to the dough it will save it. Lemon is more springy was my thought so i opted for the lemon. Still not great at all. The anise probably would have given more of the " Italian" flavor. Also i think if I were to attempt these again, i might try an icing as oppsed to the frosting, to thick of a texture.... No offense intended here especialy after such wonderful reviews. Just not at all as i expected.
