Italian Easter Bones of the Dead


Easter Treat
An Italian Easter Favorite my Grandma used to make."

Ingredients

1 pound confectioners sugar
3 eggs separated (large or extra large)
3 tsp baking powder
3/4 pounds of flour (3 cups)
1/2 tsp anise or vanilla or lemon flavoring


Instructions

Mix dry ingredients and sift three times. Separate eggs and beat whites
stiff. Beat egg yolks with flavoring you chose and add flour mixture. Fold
in stiffly beaten whites. Work dough
well. Roll in long strips 1 inch thick. Cut 2 inches long diagonally.
Place on cookie
sheet and let dry overnight uncovered. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10
minutes.


For flavoring I use Clove Oil (that's what was in the the store bought
ones).
Make sure there is enough room between each cookie for spreading when
cooking.
(I made the mistake of putting them too close and had to cut them to
separate
them. Figure like 12 on cookie sheet.
