"This is my favorite cookie of all the ones my Nana made and taught me to make for the family. In her memory I share this recipe with you. My Grandmother Nancy (Saccuzzo) Gama made these for me every year until her death. Now, I make them in honor of her every year. You will enjoy these. Serve with wine or your favorite ice cream. They are also a great accent to a good cup of coffee."

Soooo good! These cookies are crunchy on the outside and cake-like on the inside and so easy to make! NOTE: They have to rise overnight, so plan ahead!

I did not care for these. They were very sticky. How do you roll the mess into little balls I would like to know. The ground cloves is an odd taste for a cookie.

This was an absolutely delicious recipe! Thank you so much for sharing it!

These cookies are more work than they're worth. They're not bad, but the overnight wait just isn't worth it. Plus, the batter is horrendously sticky and gloms onto the tea towel, making a big ...
