“This recipe is from my Italian mother-in-law. She refers to them as spoon cookies because most Italian cookies are shaped and these are just dropped from a spoon. They're usually seen at Christmas.”

These were good and freezed well, too. I think they may be even better if you substituted almond extract for the vanilla.

I Loved these cookies I just added a little more butter >Softness< and sugar >sweetness< and they turn out great >Cook time a litle longer 3-6 mins more<. My Result was a cake-like soft, thick, sugar cookie kinda Simple but Not plain. Super easy to make when you need a fast simple cookie >took me 30 min. for the frist batch to be done< and very easy to change. You can add almost anything you want & these cookie will taste great.

I needed a recipe for a bridal shower I was catering and the only thing they said they wanted was "Italian cookies" - so I hunted and tried this one - it's amazing! The cookies are nice and moist and if you add some flavoring to the icing, they are even better! I used a dual-handled ice cream scoop and they came out in perfect mounds!
