Christmas Italian Recipe


This is not your typical dense, heavy cheesecake that is made with cream cheese.

Using ricotta cheese gives the cake a fluffier and lighter texture!

This super easy Italian cheesecake is the real deal.

Not only it is delicious but very tasty.

If you like cheesecake you are going to like this variation.

Bocconotti translates to “mouthfuls” or “bites”.

This traditional half-moon- shaped cookie with a cake-like texture is filled with grape jam and chocolate.

These delicious honey-covered fritters are traditionally prepared in Calabria around Christmas time.

Homemade orange flavored taralli, baked then coated with sweet and tangy lemon icing and colored confetti.

With this recipe you can be part of my tradition, begin your own tradition and perhaps start your own family competition for generations to come.

The Italians have many versions of the Italian Easter pie.

My personal favorite has always been this simple, sweet creamy version that invariably filled my mother’s kitchen with an aroma that prompted our neighbors from their homes in order to follow the scent.

The mostaccioli are sweet Christmas cookies typical of the regions of Southern Italy.

There are many variations, as many are the countries in which these sweets are cooked right on feast days.
