ITALIAN LITTLE KNOTS COOKIES


These Little Knots are more like a sweet, frosted bread than a cookie.

The Italians dunk these treats in coffee or a sweet dessert wine at the end of a large meal.

A satisfying dessert that is not over-filling!

20m

  • Sift together baking powder and flour and stir gradually into butter mixture to from dough.  Chill dough for at least one hour.
  • Pinch off pieces of dough about the size of a large walnut.  Shape dough into small rope-like pieces and twist into a small knot.

  • Remove from cookie sheet, cool and frost with frosting.
