Cuccidati-- Italian fig cookies, I married into an Italian family and they love these cookies. They are so expensive to buy so I found this recipe...they are so good! I am not allowed over for Christmas unless I make them. ;-)
Cucidati – Italian Fig Cookies Wow, this takes me right back to my childhood! This is an amazing cookie that my Italian grandmother would make only during Christmas. A very special cookie. Very happy to see this recipe in detail! http://www.browneyedbaker.com/2009/03/04/cucidati-italian-fig-cookies/
Cucidati! Whether you call them Cucidati, Sicilian X Cookies, or just plain Italian Fig Cookies, the end result is the same. Tender sweet dough, that's wrapped around a very flavorful spiced fig filling.
