I LOVE these cookies. My grandmother was from Rome but she would make these most often around the holidays! Thanks for the trip down memory lane! :-)


whoa looked so beautiful, so good that i cant imagine taking a bite hahaha


Laura, you're welcome. It's a pleasure to give a little trip down memory lane to my favourite blogging pro-cook (or should I say chef?)

Babe, I can assure you that once you've tasted one you'll have no scruples in biting into them :-).


They are so beautiful, they take my breath away. And thanks for the travelogue too.


These are so beautiful. Would you mind sharing the recipe? Thank you!

Wow! What a visual treat Alberto! We instantly fell in love with this one.


Oh my Albert, each one of your entries is a sight to behold! Are we mailing you all twelve of those cookbooks? LOL. Just pure perfection of you ask me!


Thanks everyone for the compliments. Ruth, unfortunately I don't have a tested recipe for these. I only eat them when I know I can buy them from a good pastry shop, home made ones are nice (at least the ones I have had at friends places in Italy) but never as good.

Chronicler, happy you liked the entries. No chance of me winning all the books though. MKe and Jennifer are out of the competition :-).

I am looking for a recipe for a Sicilian cookie similar to "Bugie". I think it is called 'frollini"

I have a recipe for a ravasani cookie, made by Italian women in Kansas City, Missouri. It is boiled and then baked and the recipe makes a lot of cookies.(12 pounds of flour and 3 dozen eggs).
This is a hard cookie with fennel seeds baked into it and stores for months and is a great "munching" cookie with coffee.
Does anyone have a recipe for these and does anyone rmember what they are shaped like? I can remember the taste, not the shape.

I'm looking for a cookie recipe called something like "cavadette" It is a sponge-type lady finger cookie, dipped in sugar water and sprinkled with almonds, cinnamon and sugar. Thanks
