Last Friday I made these cookies from Dolce Italiano, Desserts from the Babbo Kitchen. Another winner!!
The cookies called for currants so I was a bit leery if Chris would like them. Chris considers raisins to be the "food of the Devil" so I wasn't sure if his feelings about tiny dried fruits carried to the currant. Luckily, they did not. As a matter of fact, these passed the bittersweet chocolate hazelnut cookies (aka biscotti di ciccolato a nocciole) as Chris's favorite (Sammi's favorite is still the Lemony Semolina Cookies; I'm not sure about Becky's). The recipe calls for grappa, which I do not have on hand, so I substituted brandy. Plus, I forgot to sprinkle the cookies with granulated sugar before baking, but still these were a hit. The only one who didn't appreciate them was Becky. As it turns out, she has the same aversion as her father, only hers does extend to the poor currant.
Again, sorry for the picture quality - I suck at taking food pictures.
On the Weight Watcher points program, these cookies come in at an easy one point each!
