    Julesong's Note:

    My husband Mike makes these fabulous flat (no-flour) Italian cookies every year for the holidays, and they're absolutely heavenly! These cookies are an excellent addition to food gifts, as they will keep for a long time. Silpat baking sheets are very helpful when making these little gems.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/4 cup walnuts
    • 1/4 cup almonds
    • 1 tablespoon raisins
    • 1 tablespoon candied citrus peel (orange and lemon)
    • 2 ounces butter
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1/2 ounce candied cherry (about 5)
    • 1/2 ounce crystallized ginger
    • 1 tablespoon cream
    • 4 ounces semisweet baking chocolate

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Finely chop walnuts, almonds, raisins, orange and lemon peel, cherries, and ginger.
    2. 2
      Melt butter in a saucepan, then add sugar and stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved.
    3. 3
      Bring to a boil and let it boil for 1 minute without stirring (until just turning light golden).
    4. 4
      Remove from heat and mix well with cream and fruit-nut mixture.
    5. 5
      Spoon heaped teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet (if you have a Silpat, use it!), leaving plenty of space for spreading- try only doing four at a time until you see how large they spread.

      Bake at 300 degrees F for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
    7. 7
      Let cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute before carefully removing with spatula.

      I love these! I had these once a couple of years ago and was delighted to see the recipe. Very wonderful and a great change from the usual Christmas cookies! I will be keeping this recipe for certain! Thank you for posting.
