Santa Lucia cookies

karykat | Nov 19, 200712:54 PM     28

I'm wondering if anyone has made a particular kind of Santa Lucia cookie. They are made on metal forms that are basically a curved piece of thin metal. (Looks kind of like a french bread pan but upside down.) You roll out the dough and then cut it into strips and put on the mold and bake. They form curved cookies. Some people apparently arrange them on a plate to make a Santa Lucia "crown." Another version uses wafer paper. You spread an almond paste mixture on the wafer paper, then cut into strips and bake.

I bought a couple of these metal molds and some of the wafer paper at Maid of Scandinavia (Sweet Celebrations). Has anyone made these cookies before? I want to try them for the holidays and am looking for tips.
