This is one of the many cookie recipes that has been handed down from generation to generation in Roseann's Italian family. After losing her mom 8 years ago to a rare form of Parkinson's Disease, it makes her feel better to bake all her cookies at holiday time. It's a way to honor her and the traditions in her family.
