“This is an old Sicilian recipe that is a family tradition. They need to sit overnight before baking.” - by BILLSFRAN
Original recipe yields 60 cookies
- Sift together the sugar, flour, baking powder, and cloves. Make a well in the sugar mixture, and pour the eggs into the well. Work the eggs into the mixture, first with a fork, then with your hands, until you have a smooth dough.
- Line a baking sheet with foil. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Flatten each cookie with the bottom of a glass. Cover with a clean dish towel and let rest overnight. Cookies will spread.
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 15 minutes. Remove cookies from pan immediately as they come out of the oven or they will stick. Cool completely on a wire rack.

"Just made a batch tonight! They taste EXACTLY like I remember...We weren't patient enough for them to cool...they were GONE before they became hard. LoL~ We added a light white glazing of confectioner..." See mores sugar and lemon juice for a slightly different twist. THANK YOU for posting this recipe! :)"
