In this video, you’ll see how to turn a very few ingredients into little circles of buttery deliciousness. These Italian cookies are deceptively simple, but anything but plain. Watch the video, then get the recipe for C. Davis’s Italian Cookies I.
Today just got a VERY similar recipe from my Italian Aunt and she used baking POWDER.
True, but still - in this recipe, should it be baking soda or baking powder??
Both baking soda and baking powder are leavening agents, which means they are added to baked goods before cooking to produce carbon dioxide and cause them to 'rise'. Baking powder contains baking soda, but the two substances are used under different conditions.
