all souls day
the longer i live in san antonio, the more i appreciate its culture & traditions. this recipe is from a vintage italian cookbook, but substitute the almonds for bones and you got some good ol' day of the dead material. besides my family,friends & garanimals, it is hard to find something that i love more than italian cookies. when we lived in brooklyn, i would pack up three kids and take the subway (there & the bus back) to court street bakery for italian holiday cookies & nonholiday cookies for the rest of the year. bring on the figs, almond paste, pignoli, almonds & nonpareils. we are tawkin' solid gold.
solid gold for all souls with a splash of rock&roll.
