Dessert at a wedding is often a sheet cake or a multi-tiered cake with a little bride and groom set at the top. Modern weddings like to shake up a stuffy old cake tradition by serving cupcakes, cake pops, or other more trendy sweet treats. A few months ago, we attended the wedding for the daughter of a family friend. At the reception, we couldn’t get enough of one particular dessert item: Italian wedding cookies. The recipe, but more importantly the process to make these cookies is steeped in family history and tradition. Mothers, grandmothers, aunts and cousins have, for generations, prepared dozens upon dozens of these traditional cookies for a couple as they celebrate their “I dos”.
These cookies are probably familiar to any tea-lover out there; the crumbly, slightly sweet and buttery cookie is the perfect partner to a warm cup of tea. These bite-sized cookies are the perfect finger-food to accompany a tea sandwich. Whether you’re preparing for a wedding feast or hosting a tea party, these cookies are a great way to celebrate the occasion. A few simple pantry items are all that’s needed to bake these delicate and delicious cookies.
