Italian cookie recipe, hard to find

Amy, I also have this book and the recipe is not complete. The old Italian ladies used to leave out ingredients and steps for there cookies because they didn't want anyone making them as good as them. This is the only cookie I have not ever been able to duplicate. I love Ravasani cookies but since they are so time consuming no one makes them anymore. I would live to find a couple more recopies for these to find out what is missing. I have almost every cookie recipe i was looking for except this one. I have found in the past with the other that I need at least three or four different peoples recipes to figure out what was left out.

HELP: Need cookie recipe

Thank you... I saw that one and I actually have the cookbook that it came from, and know the author of the recipe. Unfortunately there is more to the recipe than what is in the book. For some reason the old Italian ladies like to leave out steps and ingredients. I was hoping to come across a recipe from another source. I have found out in the past that if I can accumulate three or four recopies I can usually find out what is missing from them. I am thinking from my research that this cookie is called something else outside of the Kansas City area, since I can't find it anywhere else.

HELP: Need cookie recipe

I have been looking for a recipe for Ravasani Cookie for years. It is a hard anise cookie that is boiled then baked. I haven't had any in years and would like to attempt to make them.
