Nowhere near the Italian cookies from Bensonherst, or any Italian bakery. Much too dense. Don't make these if you're looking for the little leaf shaped or ladyfinger shaped cookies that are filled with jam and dipped in chocolate...these are not it.

Very good cookie - they have become a staple in my Christmas cookie collection. I do not add the red food coloring. I use a pastry bag with extra large star tip to pipe them and then put rasberry perserves in between two, dip one end of the sandwich in chocolate and colored sprinkles.

These were better than the bakery cookies... I made them with 1 and 1/4 cups of whole wheat flour and 2 and 1/2 cups white flour and left out the food coloring... I couldn't get them to work well with the cookie press (may have been the warm day) but I rolled them into finger shapes and popped them in the fridge so they were cool before baking... spread raspberry jam in between two and dipped them in melted chocolate and sprinkles: SO GOOD!
