Mystery Cookie Recipe - Roscitto ?

matador7 | Nov 27, 2010 11:47 AM

My mother-in-law has vowed to take the family cookie recipe to her grave. She has carefully guarded this thing closely forever - even if we were to find her handwritten recipe book (also kept hidden when not in use), it is written in her indecipherable italian cursive that only a team of CIA experts could decode. Has anyone every heard of a cookie called a "Roscitto"? It is dry and flaky and almost as cripsy as a biscotti. It has a very slight Anice flavor to it. It is rolled into a thin strand before being chaped into a ring and baked for 6-7 minutes. If you turn your back on the oven for 30 seconds too long these things burn. She is originally from Marche, but we are not sure if that is where the recipe originates. Any suggestions would be helpful. Since we are all forbidden to enter the kitchen when she is baking these things, I really don't have more details.
Thanks,
Allec
