Italian Knot Cookies

For those of you missing the last post on myself, sister and mom making Italian knot cookies. Here posted to the left is my sister's batch of Italian knot cookies. She makes these unbelievable tasting cookies with such love and real authentic tactics. She learned from the best, my mom. This recipe is actually my mother's version of the Italian knot cookie. These cookies are such a hit over the holidays that my sister takes baking orders from friends and local people wanting trays of Italian knot cookies. The presentation is beautiful too. I'll post more on my sister, Meri and her cooking skills soon.

I was listening to NPR about blogging and someone commented about your fantastic blog so I had to check it out...Needless to say I love it!!! I too am an Italian/American..I grew up eating these cookies and LOVE them. I am so glad to find the recipe. My mother is ill and of course recipes in my family were not written it's nice to see that you share this with the blogging community. Keep up the great work!!! I am really enjoying your work. :)

HI Jayme,
Thanks so much for the compliment! I think its important for us (Italian-Americans) to stay closely connected to our heritage. Its very easy for our culture to fade into this melting pot we live in. I welcome your comments anytime and visit often here at the blog.

Thanks Again,
