'Wish I Had Another' cookie recipe

See also

It's holiday cookie time and maybe you're looking for something a little different this year. This cookie recipe comes all the way from Italy and is likely influenced by the 1930s Depression Era, when sugar was scarce. The cookies are still plenty sweet. In fact, in almost any modern baking recipe, halving the sugar will have no noticeable affect on taste.

The look and shape of these cookies is unique, reminiscent of the famous Italian cookie biscotti, but these cookies are much easier to make. A firmer cookie, a little on the dry side, with a mild crunch, these cookies are addictive, almost dangerous. Bite into one and you'll know why they are called, "Wish I Had Another."

  • 1 ½ cups butter (3 sticks at room temperature)
  • 1 ¼ cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
