"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:
Personal Notes:
Louie has been making these cookies for years and gives most of them away. Our grandchildren never come for an overnight but what they make cookies with Grandpa. If there are any in the freezer when our son, Brian, comes, he eats them all. There were times when he was supposed to bring some of them home for his children but by the time he got there, he had eaten every last one of them.
