    Roxygirl in Colorado's Note:

    I didn't know I was in need of a chocolate Italian cookie, unitl I read a request for one on the discussion board. I felt a kinship with the recipe and immediately made it.The cookie tasted just like Christmas to me. It is a beautiful addition to any cookie tray. KimD supplied this recipe found on the internet.These freeze well or stay for two weeks in a Tupperware in the refrigerator.
