I started making these a few years ago when I was too poor to get everyone Christmas gifts so I did cookies instead. I've made them every year since! They're SO tasty. And I'm a very very amateur Baker but they're so easy to make. Just sweet enough without being too sweet for the adults. They're my "famous" recipe now. The only mod I use is to add a touch of water to the batter.
This was really easy to make. I love the flavor of the dough and want to try using it for a pie crust later. I did need to add additional water to the glaze, and a little almond flavoring. I dipped each cookie, flipped it over and quickly sprinkled on the sprinkles. They are so pretty! And the glaze gets hard enough that they will be easy to pack up to travel. I don't like overly sweet cookies, so these taste perfect to me.
I made these last night. Very easy recipe. The cookie itself was tasty. Not too sweet but the glaze was awful. And the directions aren't good. If you let the glaze set before sprinkling the topping, they roll off. If you dip them into the sprinkles before the glaze is set, it gets glaze into the sprinkles. I ended up bringing them to work as I couldn't use them for my Christmas Cookie give aways
Just made these w/my 2 kids and they're delicious and easy! Definitely needs the glaze to sweeten it up and also make it pretty! Will be making a batch of these for the holiday gatherings.
this was soooo good and easy to make.. loved them! I will defientely make them again this week.
What I would like to know is if these freeze well. I understand that they go quickly, but I want to make my Christmas cookies early while I am off but they need to be frozen until the week before Christmas.
We took these to our family Christmas. They were a huge hit. We fought over the last ones.
I will try them with Anise....just thinking about it is making my mouth water. Thank you for the recommendation.
These were very easy, quick and fun to make. I could see people either loving or hating the flavor. They remind me of small, sweet little bread biscuits. I actually prefer them without the icing and think they'd be nice with coffee or tea.
A new tasty, Christmas (and post Christmas) favorite! I even made them with SPLENDA Blend and they were consumed at warp speed. Definitely 4 stars for these "edible table decorations". Will make the next ones with either almond or orange instead of vanilla. Yummy!
I love these. They're very pretty and not overly sweet. I did make an extra batch of the glaze to sugar them up a little more.
Beikng Italian, I'm more familiar with these being called Angenetti. They are anise flavored with Anise seeds and oil instead of vanilla. YUMMY! I've also had them made with pure orange oil.
Wonderful! So easy snd not too sweet. My 22 year old son says this is the only cookie he wants me to bake for the holidays next year!
I have a similar recipe for these cookies. They are very popular in our Italian community but they are called angenetti not angeletti. Personally I like almond extract, but my grandmother used orange extract or orange juice.
These are really cute with holiday sprinkles - I used the holly mix - little green sprinkles and tiny red rounds. I have to make another batch (or 2!), as my husband and 10 year old son devoured these - despite not containing any chocolate. Quick, easy, tasty, and they look very elegant on a platter.
Very dry - will not make again.
I love these -- actually took pictures of them because they looked so nice and Christmas-y. Make sure the glaze is thin enough, too thick and the cookies taste a little chalky. Very buttery -- might try another flaver in the glaze to change things up a bit. Instead of sprinkling nonpareils -- I put into a plate, dunked the cookies in glaze and then dunked in the dots. Made a little less messy. Very very good, and easy!
HI - I'm just wondering, did you actually make this recipe, and then say you love it?
