A traditional Italian Cookie

Top Review by Beatrice P.

This recipe is so incomplete, you will waste your valuable time & money!! The directions are so on earth can you sift eggs, sugar & butter? If you try to follow the directions, it just won't work. Use my directions!! Sift dry ingredients except the confectioners sugar!!!.....cream butter & sugar...beat in eggs & vanilla.....then add dry ingredients. Save the confectioners sugar for the icing with vanilla & water. Good Luck!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream butter and sugar, beat in eggs; add vanilla and then dry ingredients.
  2. Knead and add flour as needed to keep dough from sticking to hands. Pinch off dough, roll in your hands to form a log and then twirl into shape. Place on greased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.
  4. Combine the next 3 ingredients until creamy.
  5. Dip cookies into icing and sprinkle with trim. Place on wire rack with wax paper on counter to collect the dripping icing and sprinkles.
