These simple but delicious biscuits are from Sicily where they are called Dead Bones (L'Ossa Morte). They need to sit overnight before baking.
Just made a batch tonight! They taste EXACTLY like I remember...We weren't patient enough for them to cool...they were GONE before they became hard. LoL~ We added a light white glazing of confectioners sugar and lemon juice for a slightly different twist. THANK YOU for posting this recipe! - 23 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These came extremely hard. I may have done something wrong, but I am not sure what since I followed the recipe exactly. - 16 May 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
