Personal Notes:
This is my mother Josephine Mannino’s original cookie recipe. As a child, my mother would make these cookies and fill our home with their delicious aroma. These yummy cookies have been a favorite in my family all my life. I give these as gifts to the people I love at Christmas and Easter.
