I made these today. The cookies turned out very nice. They did need a bit more time cooking. I formed them into 1 inch balls. The glaze needed a bit more milk than recipe said. Over all they were very good and this recipe is a keeper.

These were great! My Italian co-worker stated that they're called "Anginetti" and they also use anise extract to flavor.
