I love these cookies!! In Greece we make them every year as they are traditional Christmas cookies. So make them, they’re delicious and fairly easy to make. Our other traditional christmas “cookies” are melomakarona, you can try them too!

Meiji Mushroom Moutain maybe?

Kinoko no Yama are mushroom-shaped treats, with the stem being a cookie and the cap being a melt-in your-mouth chocolate.

Here’s a j-list link that shows a box of them if this is what your thinking of.

Question by TT: does anyone know what this japanese cookie is called?
there’s a cookie i got in japan that was delicious. it was shaped in a circle with white or green tea icing in the center (kind of like an oreo). the cookies on the outside were circular and had ridges. they were plain vanilla-like.

i’m searching for the name of this cookie. please tell me if you know.

“Senbei” is the kind and type of cookie that you’ve described.

If you’re able to find a local Japanese market in your area, there should be a nice variety of Japanese cookies available(including rice crackers; known as “arare”).

Question by Alanah: what is this mexican cookie called?
Well i’ve recently had this mexican cookie. Its like 2 small cookies (i think it’s short bread) with powdered sugar on top and in the middle is like a condensed milk filling, but it’s brown, so i think its mixed with something else. So please if u have any idea what it is, please say so. THANK YOU!

Sounds like it could either be a “Biscocho” or a Mexican wedding cookie. Hope this helps.

Ever heard of a Italian cookie called a Chinese cookie?

Question by NozDontKnowMyNamz: Ever heard of a Italian cookie called a Chinese cookie?
Nothing at all to do with a fortune cookie. This cookie was a large soft sugar-cookie-like deal with a dollop of chocolate right in the center and chocolate sprinkles around the entire perimeter. I’ve had them in my youth but haven’t seen a one since and can’t find them online…

Any idea what I’m talking about?
appreciate the first answer much… a lot of info for sure. but the one I’m talking about doesn’t deal with fruit.

Florentines

Florentines are an Italian cookie, filled with candied fruit.
They spread out while baking, like lace cookies, but are much chewier.

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:
1/3 cup butter (NO substitutes)
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. milk
2/3 cup flour
1-1/2 cups assorted candied fruit, chopped

Preparation:
Line cookie sheets with silpat or parchment paper. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In heavy saucepan, melt butter. Stir in honey, sugar and milk and remove from heat. Add flour. Return to heat, stirring constantly, and cook over medium until the mixture thickens a bit, about 3-6 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in candied fruit.

Drop by teaspoonfuls 2″ apart onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake at 325 degrees for 10-12 minutes until edges are light golden brown. Let cool on cookie sheets for 2 minutes, then carefully remove and let cool on brown paper. If you use wire racks for cooling, the cookies may collapse through the wires – not what you want.

ITALIAN ANISE COOKIES (ANGELONIES)

1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. shortening
1 1/2 c. sugar
4 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. anise extract
1 tsp. lemon extract
1 tsp. vanilla extract
4 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda

FROSTING:

2 c. confectioners’ sugar
2-3 tbsp. milk
1 tsp. any of extracts
Nonpareils

Melt shortening and butter and cool. Mix eggs, sugar, anise, lemon and vanilla. Blend in melted shortening. Add flour, baking powder and baking soda. Mix well until it forms a soft dough. Dough will be easier to work with when cool. Place spoonful on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Mix confectioners’ sugar, milk and extract to form desired consistency and drizzle on warm cookies. Sprinkle with nonpareils while still warm.

We make these Italian cookies at Easter and Christmas time

ITALIAN CHRISTMAS COOKIES

1 c. olive oil
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. orange extract
1 1/2 tsp. anise extract
4 c. flour, sifted once with 4 tsp. baking powder
1 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp. lemon extract
6 eggs

Mix all ingredients in large bowl until a dough consistency. Roll in a little flour to handle and break off small pieces. Roll and twist. Bake 8-10 minutes on greased pan at 350 degrees. Cookies will be very light after baking.

ICING:

Confectioners’ sugar
1 1/2 tsp. orange extract
1 1/2 tsp. anise extract
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp. lemon extract
A little milk

Mix and dip cookies in icing. Allow to dry before handling. Yield about 4-5 dozen.

hope these help. enjoy.
