ISO Italian Fig Cookies...

Hi, I'm searching for an Italian Bakery that carries Southern Italian fig cookies. They go by many different names - cucciddati, cuddareddi, petrali, bucalleti, etc... - but they're all the same thing, a fig filled cookie. I have seen fig rings, large, cake-like things, but that's not what I'm searching for. I'm searching for the cookie itself.

I have found many recipes for them, but I'm a dismal baker, it would be so much easier to buy them for the holidays. If anyone has seen them in any bakery please let me know.

Thanks in advance for the help.

    1. It is on 86th Street between 14th and 15th and they will deliver them to you. They have the Sicilian fig cookies listed on that web site.

        Ditto for Mona Lisa Bakery. The others are great - these are sublime. While you're there, check out the outrageous Christmas lights on the nearby homes! There are traffic jams to see them, but you can eat your fig cookies as you drive around.

      2. Court Street Pastry has a wonderful Italian baker who makes all the Southern Italian Christmas specialties. Cuccidadi is excellent. The price is very reasonable as well.

        1. I love fig cookies too and recently got some very good ones at Royal Crown Bakery on 14th Ave. Don't remember seeing them there before so it might be a good idea to call before going (718-234-1002).
