"MY AUNT would make these cookies for dessert. I can remember walking into the house and I'd almost swoon when I smelled them baking—the aroma seemed to fill every room. They were my favorite, and they still are. Back then, I used to pretend Aunt Carmella made them especially for me!"

My mother brought this special family recipe from Europe a century ago, Cenci can be "dressed up" for any holiday—at Easter, I sprinkle yellow, pink and lavender jelly beans over them, and for Christmas, red and green candy sprinkles give the cenci a festive look. Even without the garnish, they always disappear fast!

"A fellow stay-at-home mom gave me this recipe so we could enjoy our latte breaks more affordably with homemade biscotti," says Evelyn Bethards Wohlers of Columbia, Maryland. "I modified the original version by using a sugar substitute and reducing the carbohydrates and fat. Tangy dried cranberries and spices give it delicious flavor."
