Italian Spoon Biscuits

    25 minutes

    I call these spoon biscuits because most Italian biscuits are shaped and these are just dropped from a spoon.

    I Loved these cookies I just added a little more butter >Softness< and sugar >sweetness< and they turn out great >Cook time a litle longer 3-6 mins more<. My Result was a cake-like soft, thick, sugar cookie kinda Simple but Not plain. Super easy to make when you need a fast simple cookie >took me 30 min. for the frist batch to be done< and very easy to change. You can add almost anything you want & these cookie will taste great.  -  05 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These were good and freezed well, too. I think they may be even better if you substituted almond extract for the vanilla.  -  09 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I needed a recipe for a bridal shower I was catering and the only thing they said they wanted was "Italian cookies" - so I hunted and tried this one - it's amazing! The cookies are nice and moist and if you add some flavoring to the icing, they are even better! I used a dual-handled ice cream scoop and they came out in perfect mounds!  -  14 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
