‘Tis the season to be jolly! It’s Christmas time. We are finalizing our shopping list, thinking about everyone who deserves presents…or not. We make plans on how to spend the holiday and with whom. And, most importantly, we think about what to put on the table.
While we would never refuse a bowl of pasta, maaaaaybe we could forget about it at least once and let our sweet tooth take the wheel. And no, we are not talking about the famous tiramisu this time. It’s something a lot more Christmas-y and even the little ones will have a lot of fun helping out.
If we are talking about authentic Italian Christmas cookie recipes, there is a clear winner–the Christmas star cookies. While you might think they can’t compete with the more popular panettone or the delicious yule log, don’t count out the wonderful simplicity of such cookies. They are also excellent to accompany tea or coffee, or if you just want to have a snack. Also, make sure you have star cutters before trying to bake them.
Enough with the talking though. Let’s see how they’re made.
I wanna do this, put it in a box or jar and give it as a gift to my friends. Cookies made with love.
