Description

These Tuscan cookies are a traditional holiday cookie in Italy (Befana means Epiphany), but they are also good throughout the year. The dough can be rolled out and cut into any shape you want; just be sure to roll it thinly so the cookies have the desired crispness. Also, be sure to bake them until dark golden brown. They’re usually decorated with colored sprinkles, but you could forego that and dust them with powdered sugar instead.
