we'll call this the Italian Christmas Cookie. i believe it is better known as the Italian Wedding Cookie. i've also been informed, by an Italian, that if these don't show up at the party in some shape or form... well...it's just not a party. period. weddings, baby showers, birthdays, engagements, any and every celebration has to have these.
