"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:
This recipe, given to me by Aunt Louise, is very similar to "Grandma Allspach's Overnight Cookies." This brown sugar cookie recipe can be made with or without the filling. The dough can be shaped in a roll and kept overnight. This is a must over the holidays. They are fun to make and the results are rewarding.
