These traditional Italian butter cookies are popular crowd-pleasers year-round with their cakey cookie texture and lightly flavored icing. Begin by creaming butter with sugar, then beating in eggs, vanilla, almond extract, milk and oil. Mix together flour and baking powder then combine with the rest of the ingredients. Roll the dough into balls, then ropes, then form into loose knots and bake. When cool, dip in a rich icing of confectioners’ sugar, butter, vanilla, milk, food coloring and almond extract. Add colorful sprinkles and share in exchange for multiple smiles! Get the recipe for Italian Easter Cookies.
