Just in Time for Christmas: Italian Sprinkle CookiesPosted: December 16, 2013 | |
This year, when we first put the tree up, half of the lights did not work. After hours of careful inspection, we managed to change most of the burnt-out bulbs. And I mean the royal “we” here as my husband did most of the work and has no fingernails left to prove it. The tree looks much better and the kids and I are happy to decorate it now – it’s no fun decorating a “dark” tree.
Along with tree lights, another thing that really makes it feel like Christmas for us are Grandma Rita’s Taralli cookies. The best part for the kids is decorating them with the colorful sprinkles. They wait patiently as I dip each one in the glaze and place it on the cookie rack. Then they take turns letting the tiny, ball-like sprinkles bounce all over the cookies (and the table, and the floor). Clean-up is even fun as we all use our fingers to taste the sweet glaze that has dripped from the cookies onto the table. The vacuum has to come out too, but no one seems to mind cleaning-up when we have such a tasty finished product.
I hope you all have a warm and wonderful holiday season. Enjoy this recipe on the “Recipe Rescue” page – Merry Christmas! Note: this recipe has been removed to make room for another delicious recipe.
