Anginetti (Lemon Drop Cookies)

Carol Junkins


These are delicious, with a nice lemony flavor. A recipe was posted on here by Star Pooley using Anginetti cookies, however they have been discontinued by Stella Dori now. The members were looking for them so I found this recipe on how to make them yourself.
If this makes to many you can always cut it in half to make just a few dozen.
