Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
When we were young, our Italian grandmother used to make these small breads from a recipe passed down from her family in Bari, Italy. During the holidays, she would often braid the dough and put an egg in the center. The house always smelled delicious whenever she made them and as young children, we loved eating them right out of the oven!
