Christmas Italian Recipe


cotta is a classic dessert served throughout Italy.

Heavy cream is boiled together with sugar and other flavorings, then poured into a decorative mold and chilled. 

These cookies are so delicate and delicious, I sometimes decorate them with chop chips, sprinkles and leave plain and dip half in melted chocolate.

Lemon drop cookies, iced Italian cookies or anginetti, whatever your family calls them you’ll be sure to find these traditional Italian cookies at many special occasions and holiday cookie trays.

Inspired by a sugar cookie and featuring ricotta and olive oil, this Italian sweet cake is about to become the best you’ve ever tasted.

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

The sweet version of the Crispeddi are round shaped and filled with ricotta, sugar, chocolate chips, candied diced fruits and spices.

Cubbaita or Giuggiulena is made with honey, sugar, sesame seeds, toasted almonds and orange or lemon zest.

Cream Puffs filled with a delicate Zabaione Cream… it doesn’t get better than that!
