My Authentic Italian Cookies Recipe
A really simple recipe that takes around thirty minutes to prepare, this
recipe is much loved in the Veneto but it is also common elsewhere in
Almonds are often not added in the
Veneto (for more on this region click here)
but I would suggest you use them if possible. In my opinion they make the recipe that much tastier.
List of Ingredients
1/2 cup of orange juice
1 cup of sugar
2 1/2 sticks of butter, melted
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tsp. of vanilla extract
3 3/4 cups of flour
2 tbsp. of baking powder
• In a large bowl, beat the eggs together with the orange juice, and
• Add in the butter and beat it all together well then add in
the salt, the flour and the baking powder, mix it all together with a
wooden spoon (it is very important that it is wooden).
• Stir in the vanilla
extract and then the chopped almonds.
• Shape the dough into two
separate rectangles and place them on a well greased cookie sheet.
in the oven at 350 degrees F until they begin to turn golden (it should take about 15
minutes). Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool.
• Cut the cookies into 1/2 inch thick pieces and then cook them again at 450 degrees F but only for as long as it takes for them to turn a golden brown.
