Round Italian Cookie with Hole in the middle. Anyone know the recipe for it?

Question by Nygirlgonesouth: Round Italian Cookie with Hole in the middle. Anyone know the recipe for it?
I’m looking for a cookie recipe that was made by my Italian grandmother. It was a round cookie with a hole in the middle. It had icing on the top of it. she used to store them in a tin, so they do last a bit. it wasn’t as hard as a biscotti, but it was denser than a “cake cookie”. does anyone know what i’m talking about? I will give the closest recipe 10 points. Thanks so much!

Answer by Laura O
The cookies are called “Ginetti” cookies

Here is my favorite recipe for them:

INGREDIENTS:
10 cups flour
10 eggs; (with three of the whites set aside)
1/3 c. anise liqueur
4 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1/2 tsp. salt
Lemon juice
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar

PREPARATION:

Mix together well: flour, eggs, anise, butter and salt, (reserving the three egg whites). Roll the dough into snakes, shape the snakes into rings, and nick the outer rims of the rings with a knife, then put them on a cookie sheet. Bake them in a hot oven at 375 degrees until golden. Remove them and let them cool. In the meantime, whip the reserved egg whites to stiff peaks, then beat in the powdered sugar and lemon juice (to taste) to make the frosting. Brush the ginetti with the frosting. Let them cool. Serve.

Q&A: What does an Italian SugarCookie drink consist of?

Question by Sandra J: What does an Italian SugarCookie drink consist of?
I had an Italian Sugar Cookie drink at the Old Spaghetti Factory. i know it included Baileys, Vanilla vodka, and other things. Does anyone have this recipe or one similar and as tasty? Thanks!!

Answer by Dawn
I looked on almost every drink recipe site imaginable, and none of them had a recipe for this drink, so I am going to take a shot at it, and forgive me if it isn’t right.
1 oz Bailey’s
1 oz Vanilla Vodka
1 oz Galliano (almost every drink recipe with Italian in the title has this in it. If this doesn’t taste right try Frangelico)
This is where I get confused, because you didn’t mention if it was a cream drink, a blender drink, or an ice cream drink, so… Add ice cubes and blend for blended, add ice cream and blend for ice cream, or add ice cubes and cream for cream drinks.
Other ingredients could be kahlua(coffee flavored), white or dark cacao cream(chocolate flavored), vanilla schnapps, grand marnier(orange flavored), really, a thousand other things.
My best advise is to go back to the old spaghetti factory and order the same drink and watch them make it, and then ask what the ingredients are, and right them down. I am sure the bartender would be more then willing to help you out, especially for a nice tip! (I would!)

American burgers?
It depends on what you want to say by the gift. Clothes and perfumes are usually popular.
