"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
1 egg, unbeaten 1/2 cup butter 1/2 cup lard 1 cup sugar 2 1/2 cups flour 1/2 tsp baking powder extract
Mix in the evening. Bake in the morning.
This recipe is very special since I have the original recipe in Olga's handwriting. The recipe includes no directions for mixing, oven temperature (she would have used a wood kitchen range) or how long to bake them.
