"The easiest cookie recipe ever. Although to improve the flavor slightly I added about a teaspoon of vanilla and a half of a lemon peel chopped finely. Half the batch I coated with regular sugar like..." See more the recipe suggested, the other half I added a little color and coated them with small, round, colored sprinkles."
"This is a very good Italian cookie. I thought it wouldn't be sweet enough because there isn't much sugar in the recipe, but it did have a nice sweetness to it. I used a Chianti wine (very dry) and I r..." See moreolled the cookies in turbinado (raw) sugar instead of granulated sugar. My cookies were slightly purple before cooking. Then they turned a nice golden brown while they were baking. The taste reminds me of a really good sweet bread. This is a very unique cookie and I'm glad I tried it!"
