Italian Cookies

Here’s an easy recipe for the 4th of July or any holiday, depending on the color of sprinkles that you use.  I used lemon extract and grated lemon peel for the cookie, but you could use another extract flavor such as vanilla, anise, orange, or almond.   I used vanilla extract for the glaze but you can substitute that as well.

 

I looked high and low for red, white, and blue nonpareils (sprinkles) for these cookies and finally found them at Crate & Barrel. Isn’t the jar cute?

 

I included the directions for freezing the cookie dough ahead of time, if you’re into that kind of thing.  It can save you a lot of time!

    Hi Jane,
    I saw your cookies on la bella vita and came to visit. These remind me of the cookies my neighbor made years ago and my kids loved them. Thanks so much for sharing! Your newest follower. Stop by Comfy Cuisine if you get a chance and have a great holiday weekend!

    Hi Jane -
    My great grandma, who came over from Sicily, had a recipe almost exactly the same as this one. Her cookies were so special to all of us – she made them all the time and brought them to every family event. My sister and I were just talking about making a batch. Thanks for linking up to Tasty Tuesdays!
