❄ Hello Readers! ❄
I have been looking forward to this post since the beginning of #blogmas14.
I. Love. Baking.
Especially holiday treats. My favorite cookie to eat as well as make are these:
Yup, pretty sure that’s a made up word too, but that’s what we call them. My grandmother got this recipe from a neighbor years and years ago and the name has stuck.
These are a classic Italian cookie and they are by far my all time favorite cookie. Either you love them or hate them. I’ve been told that they’re boring and bland, but this is not so! They get topped with royal icing and they taste like heaven.
mmmmmmmmmmm so much soft goodness. I think that’s my favorite part about these Italian cookies, they are so soft on the inside with a nice slightly hard outer shell. AND i’m going to stop there because i’m a horrible blogger and didn’t take any pictures with frosting. Normally we make about a million early on in December and freeze them until eating time. It’s not until then that we frost them so ya’ll will just have to keep and eye on my Instagram for when I get to decorate them! (@beingleanna)
Thanks to Google, here are some pictures of what they should look likehttps://www.google.com/search?q=italian+christmas+cookies&biw=1366&bih=681&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=X5-HVMjTFNOSyAS5uYFQ&sqi=2&ved=0CCQQsAQ#imgdii=_
