Hi Geri,

You can probably find vino cotto at an Italian grocery.

If you want to make it yourself, you must make it from grape juice. You can't make it from wine. You take clarified grape juice and boil it down to 1/3 of its volume. That's the vino cotto that's used in cooking. This sweet liquid is sometimes left to ferment, so in it's later stages it may contain a little alcohol and may be bottled as a sweet wine that is also called "vino cotto". However, in cooking, the vino cotto that is referred to is the beginning sweet grape syrup that's been boiled down from unfermented grape juice.

"Cooked wine, must - Vin cotto, mosto
This is made in the country side with the non-fermented juice of grapes pressed for wine called mosto, must. Since this is not availbale in town you can make it with grapes. They must be very very sweet ones. You need several bunches of sweet red or white grapes."

"Wash and dry the grapes and separate them. Press them and filter the juice so that it is clear with no pips, filaments or skin. Simmer the juice for several hours stirring often with a wooden spoon. It is ready when it is dense and runny like honey."

Hello Diedra,

Below is the closest recipe that I could find. It's whole wheat, but it doesn't call for wheat germ. It is from Pillsbury, but it doesn't call for Pillsbury hot roll mix. Best I can do.

  I'm looking for an old family recipe from Switzerland.  It is 
  the "traditonal" Chirstmas cookie.  It is made with crushed 
  almonds, egg whites and confectioners powdered sugar.  They  
  are rolled and cut into little stars; and icing of egg whites 
  and confectioners sugar are put on top-then baked.

  Thank you,
  Janice from NY 

Hi Janice,

Those cookies are called "Zimtsterne." There's a recipe below.

Phaed

  Zimtsterne

  Ingredients
  3 eggs
  1 egg white
  50g (1 3/4 oz) flour
  2 teaspoons cinnamon
  300g (10 1/2 oz) sugar
  600g (21 oz) milled almonds
  2 tablespoons vanilla
  100g (3 1/2 oz) powdered sugar

  Beat eggs, sugar, and vanilla together until creamy. Stir in flour, 
  almonds and cinnamon.

  Beat egg whites until stiff and stir in the powdered sugar. Roll the 
  dough flat (1 cm/0.4 in), cut out stars and paint the top with the 
  egg white/powdered sugar mixture.

  Heat oven to 150C (300F) and bake between 10 to 15 minutes. Rather 
  bake 15 minutes at lower temperature.
