Description

This recipe is a familiar one among Italian families but always seem to vary slightly. This was my mother's recipe and we added the nutmeg and cinnamon as we like more a spice flavor.

Additional Tips

Place a small amount of flour in your hand when rolling into balls to avoid sticking. Make the balls slightly smaller than a ping-pong ball. You can also swap out orange extract for the vanilla for a more citrus flavor. :)

Thank you, this is like my grandmother's recipe, but she would add almond or anise flavor. I am using this recipe for Easter. Ti ringrazio !!

I made this cookie. I kept the orange juice but changed the vanilla other spices for lemon flavoring. Absolutely delicious! Thats how my grandma and mother made them. They didnt add the orange juice though. I think its a nice touch! Love them they melt in your mouth!
