      I come from an itallian community in Canada and when I served this recipe to family and friends - they absolutely said they were the best ever. They are soft and cake like and melt in your mouth. Really easy to bake and if the Itallian community here loves them - then you know you have real winner!

      As a child I grew up with these cookies. Looking for the recipe for years untill I lucked out with putting in Italian puff cookie and wala,here it is. I made them the next day waiting for my first tast of memories. As I took the first bite I started to cry I was a child again sitting on my grandmothers porch eating this cookie all over again. That was 50 years ago. Thank you andypandy for bringing me back to a part of my childhood that I had lost many years ago.

      This was refered to me because I posted a request on a message board. I fell in love with this type cookie but the woman who baked them refused to give me the recipe. I was so happy that someone at zar was able to give me a recipe that made almost if not the same cookies. LOVED THEM
