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.

HELP! In the middle of baking sugrar cookies and NO VANILLA! Can I use coconut rum?

Question by goldfisheatingdandelions: HELP! In the middle of baking sugrar cookies and NO VANILLA! Can I use coconut rum?
So half way between the process of holiday cookies, I realize I’m out of vanilla. This brings the process to a screeching halt, and needless to say, I’m p-oed. I’ve searched the web for subsititution ideas, but have found nothing except ‘rum’. Would coconut rum work? It’s all the liquer we have at the moment, and the car’s with my mother. How much should I use?
Thank you for all of your kind answers! :) I’ll go for it! Thanks again!
