"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

Directions:
Mix the first three ingredients. Gradually work in 3 cups flour, then an additional 1 ¼ - 1 ½ cups (for a total of about 4 ¼ - 4 ½ cups). Add the vanilla.

Put a portion of the dough into a spritz iron (cookie press) with a small star disk at the end and force it out, making a long rope on a piece of waxed paper. Cut the rope into pieces about 2-2 1/2 inches long. Shape the pieces into S's and O's.

Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 375 degrees about 6 minutes, watching carefully so the cookies don’t get too brown. They’re supposed to be very light in color when done—but not moist.
