"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:
Okay, I definitely remember these from childhood, but never saw the recipe until now. As I remember, these cookies were soft, chewy and fabulous. It appears to be a really old recipe.
