December at Casa Barbarito meant it was time to start baking in mass quantity. La Momma’s repertoire was limited to Anginetti and Pizelles which took over every surface of her apartment. Tray upon tray of cookies were prepared to distribute in the days leading up to Christmas, every member of the family had a list of friends and business associates that expected cookies from Rose. Needless to say, she was the most popular resident at 63 Hill Street at this time of year.
Holiday cookie baking is a tradition with many cultures, each with their own special recipes passed down through the generations. A collection of some of my favorite biscotti and sweets are included in this post to make a bit of sense out of your cookie planning. Approaching the baking season is always easier when you make a list of your favorite cookies, gather ingredients and get to it.
A sweet December to all of my readers and please contact me with any specific questions during the month ahead.
