Little Wine Cookies / Biscottini al Vino
MAKES ABOUT 8 – 10 DOZEN
Father Jonathan DeFelice’s maternal grandmother, Adelina Balzano, was a marvelous family cook. Among her many specialties for holiday celebrations were these struffoli that are very typical of the region of southern Italy from which she emigrated in 1900. The recipe has a rather unusual measurement, but it works! After her grandmother’s death his mother, Eleanor DeFelice, continued the tradition; and now, as Father Jon says, “I am blessed to do so too.”
This recipe was featured on Season 17 - Episode 1714.
My Granddaughter & I will be making them together for the first time – thank you. Hope to start a tradition with her.

My life partner, Giulio, is from Modica, Sicily. I saw these today online and had to make them. Absolutely perfect! He said they were “just like the ones his mom makes”!
Thank you for sharing the recipe
