Love this recipe. They were very easy to make and eveyone at the party thought they were wonderful.
These cookies are nothing like the italian cookies I would get in NY at the bakeries. They taste okay, a little on the dry side. Will keep looking for a better recipe.
Being married to a man, who is 100% Italian, brings about challenges, when trying to find a "true" Italian recipe. I have had these cookies at various family functions, and I have to say that this recipe is as close as it gets! My mother-in-law actually thought that I purchased these from a local Italian market! Excellent recipe, and VERY easy to make!
I needed to make something for a church social with an Italian theme. These were easy and quick. The look and taste great. I doubled the recipe and used a small disher to measure them out. Use a small shalow bowl to "roll" the tops in the powered surgar. I am looking forward to trying them with lemon juice instead of the almond extract as a variant.
Easy to make and tastes great although no matter how I tried I could only get 36 cookies from the recipe not 48 as indicated.
I added crushed walnuts to the recipie...just like my Italian grandmother used make. Delicious!
these were yummy! i added in mini chocolate chips and chopped maraschino cherries (dried off with a paper towel) to the batter and it adds a little extra yumminess! :)
These cookies are delicious!! I needed a recipe for an Italian themed youth group dinner and chose this cookie. Fabulous!!!! I did not get 48 cookies out of one batch, but 36. Thanks !!!! ?I also sifted the confec.sugar over the cookies and they are so pretty!!
