Sweet Dreams- Xmas cookies

From my house to yours- happy holidays

It is that time of year when everyone starts baking cookies and getting ready for the holidays- here are some past recipes to bring a little Italy to our holiday table!

Buon Appetito e Buon Natale

Virtual Cookie Swap - Sienese Almond Cookies, Ricciarelli
Hot Chocolate- Italian style!  Thick and thicker!
Sweet Fig Salami Great with cheese after dinner
Fig and Walnut Panforte-  Faster to make than the fig salami
Chocolate Chunk "biscotti" A twist on a classic-
Sicilian Sesame cookies - a dry cookie, serve with a sherry or dry marsala
Nutella Fried Ravioli - one of my favorites for kids!
Rice Fritters- This is great all year- but serve warm!
 and from my website where there are tons of recipes
Panforte the fabulous honey and dried fruit dessert from Siena ( don't call it fruitcake!)
Almond- Cornmeal Cake
Chocolate Salami
Sicilian Fig-filled Cucidati


  1. At least three entries on your Xmas cookie list are among my favorites, but Salame di Cioccolato beats them all, in my humble (chocoholic) opinion.

    Thank you for this!

  2. Love Love Love ALL of them ; ) Auguri!
