"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
These bicuits are light and fluffy, the key is don't work the dough too much. You should be able to see tiny flecks of butter in the dough, use all ingrediants cold, straight from the fridge. Use a light touch, and handle dough gently.
