This is a family recipe that mimicks the best Italian bakeries in NY! This is a great cookie to dip or to have with espresso. Not too sweet, crunchy, full of flavor and store very well in or out of a freezer. Always handy to have around for drop-in guests!

Great taste and texture, but I wonder about the amount of oil used. My hands were dripping and soppy most of the time I was forming them. Maybe I did something wrong...
