    You need to leave the dough for these biscuits overnight. Serve with wine or your favourite ice cream. They are also great with coffee.

    I've been searching for a recipe that my mum called taralli. they were hard biscuits that were not too sweet and lasted a long time. she rolled them between her hands and then formed circles and baked them. these are the closest i've come to duplicating them. thank you. - 21 Jul 2008

    Soooo good! These are crunchy on the outside and cake-like on the inside and so easy to make! NOTE: They have to rise overnight, so plan ahead! - 21 Jul 2008

    My Sicilian father had remembered this type of biscuit during Christmas, while talking about the family members we missed. After a quick search I found your recipe. He was very surprised and enjoyed them. It turns out that I found others who know of this biscuit and I got compliments. I'm glad you shared your recipe. - 21 Jul 2008
