Looking for Recipe: S-Shaped Italian Cookies
#1
Every year, my aunt buys a few platters of "Traditionally Italian" cookies when they go on sale after Christmas. These cookies are delicious, and all taste like almond, which I love. My favorite ones are dense, S-shaped, and have some sort of wash brushed on them, making them slightly brown and shiny on top.

Anybody have a recipe for these beauties? I can't wait until next year- I need more!  :eats:

From this site, (http://www.hungrymonster.com/recipe/reci...?C=Italian), I found these...

Here's an almond biscotti recipe: http://www.hungrymonster.com/recipe/recipe-search.php?C=Italian&ttl=1&rid=42858

I don't know if it's the right one. Doesn't sound like it in comparing the recipe vs your picture.

Here's another, which mentions dipping cookies as does your link: http://www.hungrymonster.com/recipe/recipe-search.php?C=Italian&ttl=1&rid=42079

Here's an almond biscotti with mention of an egg wash: http://www.hungrymonster.com/recipe/recipe-search.php?C=Italian&ttl=1&rid=42085

I searched "almond biscotti" and "s-cookies" + recipe.

This is what I found in a short amount of time. If you can go through the recipes you find, perhaps one will jump out as likely to mimic your cookies.

Tim? Vox?  Nothing?  :Hmm: I've found a couple that might do, but I was hoping that one of you had your nonna's zio's recipe or something.  :)

I saw this early and I don't have a clue. My family made custard filled deserts, like zuppa inglese, and not biscotti.
