"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:
Personal Notes:
These are Nana Hannah's most famous cookies and very few can produce them quite like she could. Probably because she didn't use a recipe and made them from memory. I finally pinned her down and I think this is the best reproduction. Note there is no vanilla and you can play with the flour amount to make them really thin and crispy or a bit more plump.
