The name of these filled pastries is Cucidati, which is Sicilian for Buccellati, or "little bracelets". You may substitute butter for part or all of the lard if you wish.

A delicious fig-filled pastry. You may substitute the figs with dried apricots or dates. Hazelnuts can also be used in place of the walnuts.

This recipe has been handed down through my mother's family for years. My grandmother brought it with her from Italy in the early 1900's. My mom taught me the recipe this year. Now I am the designated person in our family to make the Fig Cookies. This is a very high honor. So they must be as good as my Grandmothers' cookies. Some call them Homemade Fig Newtons. They are a tradition at Christmas and are wonderful with a hot cup of coffee. They are lot of work. I make them in stages. First the dough, then a few days later the figs, and finally I will make the cookies. The dough and the figs keep well in the refrigerator and the cookies freeze very well.

The potato flour makes a very tender crust. These are best eaten the same day they are baked, but prepare dough one day ahead. Ideally, pearl sugar should be used in the sugar/nut mixture for sprinkling. Pearl sugar can be bought at Scandinavian shops. If you can't find it, just use crushed sugar cubes.

This recipe makes over 12 dozen small cookies... a great substitution for holiday fruitcake . You can substitute rum-soaked dried apricots and dates instead of glacee'd cherries and figs for an equally tasty cookie.
