Outside of Rome cookies made with brachetto

Hi all I am looking for this amazing cookie: looks like oversized sugar cookie -From outside of Rome cant remember the town..but we did drive up a huge hill? small mountain ... my italian friends called it ---"cup a cup a cup" tasted like a sugar cookie with yummy brachetto ..... it was semi hard /crunchy to dip into brachetto/vin santo etc... sweet wine.

Im thinking cup of sugar /brachetto/ flour.... um ??? any ideas?
