Recipe Notes


  • There's no need to use a stand mixer or even a hand mixer for this recipe, all you really need is a whisk and bowl! 
  • Coffee is a must here if you're a coffee lover, but make sure you don't use instant coffee or instant espresso as it may dissolve into the batter. 
  • You can add any type of nut, chocolate chips, dried fruits or seeds to these Italian Cookies.
  • Make sure to not overbake the cookies as they might get a bit too crispy.
  • Store these in a metal tin in a cool place.
