This cookie is on most Italian families table’s at Christmas time. This is a plain cookie but it is so delicious with a nice cup of espresso or even a cup of cold milk for the kids. The addition of the citrus undertones makes this cookie so fragrant and festive. The icing lends the perfect sweetness to the cookie and everyone loves sprinkles!

  • Add room temperature eggs, one at a time, making sure each is incorporated before adding the next.
  • Add the zest of 1 orange and Vanilla extract and mix. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients, until just combined. Batter should be thick and easy to scoop with a cookie scoop.
  • Using a 2 inch cookie scoop, scoop cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Tip:  Wet your finger and push down any points that are sticking up on the cookies or you can roll the cookies with a wet hand.

    Mix all of the icing ingredients and stir until the sugar has dissolved.  Pro tip: Ice an entire row of cookies and then sprinkle with nonpareil sprinkles so that the colors don't bleed all over the icing.
