3 Types of Italian cookies to bring to your summer BBQ

by mark anthony

Italy is world famous for its food delicacies and cookies are a speciality of the Italian Chef. Italians love making everything from scratch, whether pasta, pizza dough or cookies. They use local ingredients and combine beautiful flavours together to create unique dishes and bakery products. Among the various cookies famous in Italy, Pignoli ranks at the top of the list. It is basically a moist cookie with a chewy kind of soft texture and has its origins in Sicily. You can identify it by its color which is light golden. A paste of grounded almonds is used to make Pignoli and pine nuts are filled into the cookie dough before baking.

Try your hand at Anginetti and Amaretti

Another brilliant recipe for a summer Italian cookie is Anginetti. Like several other Italian cookies, anginetti cookies are semi-sweet with a hint of lemon flavour. That is why it is considered as the must-have cookie on your summer barbeque menu! It is made using simple ingredients such as eggs, flour, vegetable shortening, sugar and a few other additional elements.

Amaretti is a unanimously loved by all Italians and is a favourite cookie in the country. Add it to your summer BBQ by making it at home from scratch. Today, Amaretti, also locally referred to as ‘Amretti di Sacronno’, is made is all Italian bakeries and is savored by the Italian community. The main ingredient in the cookie dough is almonds and the recipe is very simple and easy to make at your Brooklyn home.

My sister in England ordered a cookie tray for me. It came yesterday and I cannot begin to share with you the memories it invoked. When I was young and even into adult hood my very Italian Grandmother would buy me these cookies when I came to NY. My uncle (94) would carry them to me in a box wrapped with string. He is no longer able to travel but Oh, how I longed for those days yesterday. I live in Statham Ga. Thanks for the amazing cookies and the wonderful memories. You have NO idea..what joy.

Thanks to you and your team for turning my idea for my mother's 50th birthday cake (3/28) into such a beautiful creation. It really added to the event and Mommy was really surprised and appreciative :)
