recipe for lemon cookies of Capri

iDINEidonotEAT Sep 3, 2010 01:17 PM

I'm looking for a recipe for the delectable lemon (lemon almond?) cookies that one can buy at a patisserie in Capri that may be called Buonocore. The cookies may be called Caprilu al limone. I think the cookies are dusted with confectioners' sugar, not iced. Also, has anyone found these available for purchase in the United States? Grazie mille.

      Are these they?

      (I'm thinking not… these look more like regular biscotti, plus it refers to white chocolate.)

      Edit: I see these are by an American company with the same name, "Buonocore".. never mind!
