Lost recipe [Moved from Midwest]

"Uncle Phaedrus" could not find any cookie by this name.
Does anyone know of a cookie recipe that sounds similar: powdered sugar, butter, etc...
No granualated sugar used in it.
In the meantime, I will try to contact someone from one of the Italian neighborhoods back in our home town, and see what I can find.
Thanks for your help everyone!

I will. But, don't be expecting TOO much. This cookie is a rather understated sugar cookie - soft, chewy sugar cookie. Italian desserts/pastries/cookies are never heavily rich. But, it's just the right touch.

Thanks...I emailed him and I'll wait to hear what he has to say.

Well, I don't know what a melting moment or crinkle cookie is...can you describe? The Caterina Cookie has no nuts or chocolate. Perhaps the recipe you have is at least close enough.

Death Warmed Over

A crockpot filled with meatballs - whether they be barbecue, sweet & sour, or in Italian tomato sauce. Hot food is comforting. Meatballs are easy to "grab and go"...just have picks/ forks handy.

Trader Joe's - Whats the big deal?

Try the frozen apple strudel. $3 a box...you keep it in the freezer...when you need a last minute dessert or an easy dessert, pop it in the oven. Delicious.

Looking for recipe.
Has anyone ever heard of a Caterina Cookie?
It's an Italian cookie recipe - made with powdered sugar.
You roll dough into balls; chill the dough; then it flattens just a little when baking to form a crackled look, as a snowflake.
Melts in your mouth.
It's my daughter's favorite cookie, and I lost the recipe several years ago.
She's getting married and I want to make the cookies for the engagement party.
