Pizzelle & Biscotti
It wouldn't be Christmas in my family without the traditional Italian pizzelle and biscotti. When my maternal grandmother was alive, it was she who did the baking- and she was amazing at it. Now my mom breaks out the pizzelle iron and makes dozens of pizzelles as well as Italian biscotti and other assorted Italian and non-Italian cookies. This year she added some color with red and white chocolate kisses atop a new kind of cookie. Those are pizzelles on the bottom, a biscotti on top and a chocolate coconut cookie with a Hershey's kiss.
