  • Additional Information

    This recipe originally was made with no eggs and with red or white wine, but not everybody (especially the not-italian people) likes the peculiar flavor. These cookies will be perfect for breakfast with a glass of milk or for a snack. Try cookies also with jam or fruits or cream!
