A Taste of Utica Chocolate Filled Cookies

A Taste of Utica Chocolate Filled Cookies by Joanne

Not too difficult and certainly worth every effort. This delightful cookie comes in a log and you simply slice as desired. It's a good thing the recipe makes 3 large cookie logs because you'll want a lot of extra.

Struffoli (honey balls)

Struffoli (honey balls) by Joseph Gargiulo

A Christmas favorite in Italian households. When I was growing up in my home there was always a bowl of these available to munch on with milk or, as I got older, with coffee. They are honey glazed pastry balls which are great for a festive snacking treat.

Easter Maritozzi

Easter Maritozzi by Evelyn Scott

Rising Time: 2 hours, 30 minutes If you want to make something even more sinful, Italian pastry shops often squirt whipped cream into maritozzi using a pastry bag after they have cooled, and also dust them with confectioner's sugar. :
