First a question: When my sister and I were kids, my mother used to make, with our help, a Swedish cookie that was deep-fried and sprinkled with powdered sugar. It was called Fatigman or something similar ... anybody familiar with it? I'd like to try it again.
I finally found the Mezzelune Ai Pignoli...they were in the Epicurious recipe bank under Pine Nut Crescents
The following are ALL from Epi.
I also love Pistachio Orange Lace Cookies I left out the Grand Marnier. Also the Pistachio Apricot Oatmeal Cookies are really good.
Cardamom-Walnut Cookies, Classic Date Bars (rich beyond belief!)
