Christmas Italian Recipe


NONNA’S LIMONCELLO AND RICOTTA ALMOND CAKE (GLUTEN-FREE)

It’s not quite a cheesecake, and not quite a cake, but somewhere in the middle.

Impress your friends and family by baking an extraordinary and authentic-tasting Italian cheesecake.

Even the most old-school nonna (that’s grandma in Italian!) turns to shortcuts from time to time, especially if she’s got a whole lot of cooking ahead of her.

Nonna’s Shortcut Ricotta Cookies are so good, no one can even tell they were made using a shortcut.

From the South of Italy, one of the most delicious dish.

With anchovies, black olives and onions……

Croccante is great party food.

For gift giving, pile it into a fancy candy dish or decorative jar.

No Christmas would be complete without some good fireside stories!

And Italy is full of interesting tales.

Pan di Spagna is the most popular type of cake in Italy.

This sponge-like cake serves as a foundation for many elaborate desserts, such as cassata and zuppa inglese.

This is a recipe I found in a very old cookbook that my husband bought for me at an antique store on our wedding anniversary a couple of years back.

I call it Grandma’s Homemade Lasagna because my mom perfected the recipe and passed it down to my family.
