Blogger Arlene Cummings of Cooking With Sugar shares a beautiful Italian recipe called Bocconotti—a mini pastry-like cookie made with a variety of fillings. Her favorite is a combination of chocolate, jam and nuts.
SAVE ON THIS RECIPE!
The filling for these cookies can vary, so feel free to get creative. Try different flavors of jam or marmalade.
Cinnamon is also used in some regions of Italy in this type of cookie, so if you like cinnamon, add 1/2 teaspoon to the dough.
If you have individual mini tart tins (about 1 3/4 inch in diameter), those can be used instead of mini muffin cups. Place the tins on a cookie sheet for baking.
