By any small miracle do you know anyone who makes these cookies.
I want to send them to my brother. I prefer the Sicilian version
You are omitting two vital pieces of information:
Where is your brother located?
Where are you located?
I had no success looking for an Italian bakery whose website said they would
ship them anywhere in the world, but it was not an exhaustive search.
If you can locate an Italian bakery near your brother's location that makes
them and that delivers or ships, then your problem may be solved.
If you can locate an Italian bakery near your own location that makes them and
that delivers or ships to your brother's location, then your problem may be solved.
I will be happy to help you locate an Italian bakery near your brother or one near
you if you give me those locations. If you live in New York City, there are many
Italian Bakeries. Try these:
Circo's Pastry Shop
La Balla Ferrara Pastries
If you feel that you could bake them yourself, these sites have recipes. Most are in
Italian, but you can use the Google "Translate" feature to translate them if need be:
Palermo Street Food
Cucina di Sicilia
Thank you for getting back to me. My brother just moved to CA. from Pennsylvania.
I now live in Florida, much to my regret. Was born and raised in New Jersey.
I have tried some of the old bakeries I remembered from growing up. They are
either out of business or don't make them. My kid brother (70) has tried all
over CA. No luck. Guess what, this old Italian lady is going to give it a try.
There's always the trash can. God Bless you for trying to help.
Have a beautiful Thanksgiving.
