"Was seeking Italian Cookie called "pizzacotti" and found this. It was a hit at the holiday cookie making party. Doubled the recipe for tons. Great shape, holds form, packs well and YUMMIE. Used alm..." See moreond meal and sweetened dried cranberries for the festive top. Great special occassion cookie and EASY!"
"These are wonderful! I had some egg whites and some sliced almonds I wanted to use. I am so glad I found this recipe. I put my sliced almonds in the blender to grind them and it worked great; the only..." See more thing is that my cookie dough was so soft there was no way I could form balls. Dropping the dough by teaspoonfuls onto parchment covered cookie sheets worked very well; since I did not want to roll them in extra sugar anyway. BIG HINT: do not remove the cookies from the parchment paper until they are cool; if not they fall apart! Connie thank you for sharing!"
