Lost recipe [Moved from Midwest]
Looking for recipe.
Has anyone ever heard of a Caterina Cookie?
It's an Italian cookie recipe - made with powdered sugar.
You roll dough into balls; chill the dough; then it flattens just a little when baking to form a crackled look, as a snowflake.
Melts in your mouth.
It's my daughter's favorite cookie, and I lost the recipe several years ago.
She's getting married and I want to make the cookies for the engagement party.
"Uncle Phaedrus" could not find any cookie by this name.
Does anyone know of a cookie recipe that sounds similar: powdered sugar, butter, etc...
No granualated sugar used in it.
In the meantime, I will try to contact someone from one of the Italian neighborhoods back in our home town, and see what I can find.
Thanks for your help everyone!
Check out this site... I think i've read a similar recipe in his archives, but if ther's not an exact mach, Phaedrus is your man to find it!
For other browsers, I've mentioned this site before; "Uncle Phaedrus" researches, archives, and reports on old, forgotten, lost, and restaurant recipes. It is not a cooking site, per se- he says he doesn't test any of the recipes himself, but I've found a few real keepers.
