"This is sometimes known as meatball cookies. A must in our family at Christmas. Feel free to cut recipe in half. I usually bake about 150 dozen cookies at Xmas time to give away in cookie trays." — MYRAMANI

1 1/2 cups
unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 teaspoons
3 1/2 cups
semisweet chocolate chips
just like grandma used to make! very good.
These are missing something. If you like hard chocolate bread like cookies then give them a go.
My Nana from Calabria brought over a wonderful recipe for cookies that we made at Thanksgiving and stored in bins (looked like the large popcorn bins that are used today)over the holidays. We all had this recipe, I know my twin still uses this but I think the others in my family may have lost the recipe. This is almost the closest to it. We used chopped maraschino cherries, raisins Allspice, citron and 10 eggs in our recipe. They are wonderful. The cookies have always been included in wedding trays and of course on the holidays.
After reading the reviews, I decided to experiment with some variations(which will most likelly be sacrilege to Italians): 1/4 recipe = 1 cup butter 3 cups flour 1 cup chocolate milk 1 cup sugar 2 eggs 1/3 cup cocoa(can be 2/3) 1 tsp baking soda 1 tsp cinammon 1/4 teaspoon each ginger, cloves 1 cup Callebaut choc chunks 1 cup pecans Baked them at 350F for 12 minutes in a convection oven (15-16 in a regular oven). My wife thiught they were great
This recipe is out of this world! Be warned this takes a lot of mixing real estate but other than that it was great. Substituted Ground Cloves for Ground All Spice and was excellent. Perfect with coffee. Definitely a holiday keeper :)
I've been looking for this recipe, my mom always made these for the holidays. I added 1/2 teaspoon of grated orange peel. Will make them again.
Kinda hard but tasty with milk.
