I'm not even sure if there is such a thing as an Italian Pretzel Cookie, in any case I decided to make up my own version. I took a Taralli Dolci dough and dipped it in chocolate. Fatto! Vi do... Josie's Italian Pretzel Cookies.

Ricotta Pie

Ricotta Pie by molly11

We took the traditional Italian holiday dessert and brought the health benefits up a notch by adding blueberries. We also think the pie tastes better and looks more inviting. Drain the ricotta cheese if you are buying the cheese prepackaged.

Almond Biscotti

Almond Biscotti by Salad Foodie

Crunchy biscotti are my go-to coffee dunkers. The sweet toasts make a perfect hostess or holiday gift besides. This recipe features almonds but pecans or hazelnuts would be fine, with vanilla extract in place of almond.
