"MY AUNT would make these cookies for dessert. I can remember walking into the house and I'd almost swoon when I smelled them bakingthe 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!"
The original version of this recipe was handed down from my great-aunt. Through the years, my mother and I have tried different flavor combinations...this is a favorite for all. —Brenda Keith, Talent, Oregon
This is one of my favorite dessert recipes because it's easily and quickly prepared, yet it's very different and delicious, good for any occasion. It is sure to impress your guests as it has mine.

"We discovered Italian ice about a year ago, and it has become a family favorite," reports Jay Hansen of Winter Haven, Florida. "The recipes I found, however, required quite a bit of sugar, so I developed my own version using fresh strawberries, fruit juice concentrate and a hint of lemon."
This no-bake treat comes together quickly and can even be made the night before. Sometimes I drizzle additional chocolate syrup over the coffee and pound cake. Other times, I add sliced almonds to the topping.Nancy Brown, Dahinda, Illinois
My husband, Joe, is Italian, and his mother was a great cook. She made wonderful biscotti, which are popular Italian dipping cookies. She never used a recipe, but I asked her to write it down for me and I was delighted when she did.Elizabeth Sparano, Marion, Iowa
