A friend of my Mom's, a little Italian lady, gave me this recipe years ago; she used to make them by the bushel and they are so good! This is one with which the children could help. Flavors I've used are anise, lemon, vanilla, peppermint, spearmint and orange. I also color the frosting to match the flavor of cookie.
