My family had made these when I was young, but lost the recipe. This seems close! We called them "caljunes" or "caljunettis."
My Italian Aunt made these but we called them Cajunitas. The filling was made of chick peas, raisins, figs, almonds, and honey. My Aunt would shred a little chocolate in the filling, but I don't. My family loves these for Christmas. Your filling seems a little sweeter! thanks for the recipie!!
My Nana used to make these during the Christmas and Easter holidays. We used to call them "cecilottala". The only difference in Nana's recipe was that she would use ground chestnuts and honey in the paste instead of the walnuts and dates. In fact, I just had some the other day...went to heaven. Thanks so much! Boun Natale e Boun Anno Nuovo!
My grandmother used to make these every year at Christmas. We couldn't wait for the chocolate ravioli's. No one had the recipe and when I found this one and tried it, it brought back wonderful memories of grandma....
This can be made with all semisweet chocolate. I baked them at 375 for 10 minutes, then rolled them in powdered sugar. The filling is wonderful, the dough isn't too sweet, and the combination is delicious!
This is almost the same recipe my grandmother used. Never saw another recipe using chick peas!
I enjoyed the cookies.
Our favorite traditional cookie at christmas! Sprinkled w/ granular sugar. THX
Thank-you so much for this recipe!! My grandmother used to make these, but I never paid attention. I have been searching for this recipe for years and it is like hers, except she added roasted, chopped almonds, and fresh dark grapes cooked down, no dates. Very nice cookie. Thank-you.
