Italian Cookies

This is a recipe from my husband’s grandmother.  Grandma N. was born in Italy and my husband fondly remembers watching her make so many Italian classics from scratch like her Italian cookies and ravioli when he would visit her as a child.    I hope you enjoy this recipes!

After it has softened, add:
