    Dee514's Note:

    Posted in reply to a request. Tarralli are the traditional Italian black pepper cookies that are usually served with a glass of wine for dunking. Although tarralli are called "cookies," they are really more like a hard biscuit or dry bread stick. Cooking time includes boiling and baking times.
