    This recipe was given to me by my friend's Italian grandmother about 35 years ago in Tannersville, NY. I have been making them exactly like this ever since and everyone who loves canoli loves these! My friend, Sal, made me some mini forms by going to Home Depot and buying an aluminum pipe and cutting it to around 5 inches each. Optional additions to filling are 1/2 cup chopped candied fruit found in baking aisle (such as citron and candied cherries and orange peel).

    Recipe #328613

    Pleasantly sweet chewy cookies, made with almond paste and pine nuts. A classic Italian cookie. These cookies were so good, they were gone in less than an hour!

    Recipe #201179

    My Grandmother used to make these cookies every Christmas. They were hard, seedy, strange looking, and tasted like Heaven. They need to be made when the weather is cool and the humidity is low.

    Recipe #182893

    This is our family's recipe for pignoli cookies that has been handed down from my fathers Italian side for many years. These are moist, chewy and sweet.

    I made this at Christmas last year and they were a big hit, especially with me and my mom. The frosting is a must.

    Recipe #63528

    Years ago, my grandmother and great-aunt went to Italy for their cousin's daughter's wedding. They ALWAYS tell the story of this glorious table full of these delectable cookies shaped like little peaches. My great-aunt, being the baker of the family, asked her cousin for the recipe. She was told that these lovely little cookies were traditionally served at weddings there in their small Italian village. The recipe itself is quite simple, however, it is the method in which you assemble the cookies that makes these so unique. My great aunt adapted the original filling. In Italy, the peach cookies were filled with cream custard held together at the crease by dark chocolate. Because she needed to make her's in advance, she changes the filling to peach preserves. If you use the traditional cream for the filling, the cookies must be made and eaten THAT DAY. I've left the recipe in her original words. The number of cookies this makes is an ESTIMATE! Will update after I speak to my great-aunt.

    Recipe #254584

    Italian Anise "waffle" cookies. Requires a pizzelle iron. This recipe was given to my Mom from the mother of her confirmation sponsor, Mary Piccone aka "Aunt Mary Tootsie Wootz". Mom said that Grandmom Piccone would make these cookies year round, and always had them available when people visited. She would make them with a handheld iron over the stove burner. She didn't have a recipe written down, so my Mother sat with her one day while she made them and took the ingredients and put them in measuring cups to record the recipe.

    Recipe #153493

    These flat cookies look beautiful and taste great! Crispy and sugary! Enjoy!

    Recipe #224213

    These delicate cake-like cookies are glazed with icing and topped with colorful candy sprinkles. They have a mild anise flavoring, which is very typical of Italian baked goods. My family always served these cookies at holidays, weddings or special celebrations, but now that I know the recipe, I can enjoy them all year long!

    Recipe #214498

    Everybody I've ever made these for have loved them. I've made them with marshmellows before too... but that didn't really work out too well hehehe. In the picture the lighter biscottis don't have the cocoa powder in them and the darker ones do. (I like them without cocoa better but that's just me.)

    Recipe #220237

    Anna migrated to Queens NY from Italy with her husband and lived in my Granny's house in the upstairs apartment. She had no children of her own so it gave her great pleasure to spoil us often with these baked goodies called "biscotti". Who knew these very traditional breakfast treats would turn into the very stylish biscotti found in the best coffee bars today! Thanks Anna for the memories :)

    Recipe #21780

    This is a basic recipe for Italian ladyfingers, the base of many desserts. I searched and searched but could never find these in the store, so I developed my own recipe and they turned out great. These are also nice to dunk in tea or coffee. Not to sweet. Prep can be a little messy, but is worth it. Enjoy!

    These cookies are very simple to do and it's possible to change shape or flavour.
