Powdered Sugar Wands (Galani) from Veneto
|We have made these fried cookiesÂ for years, mom, grandmom, Aunts, friends.Â Â Regions in Italy make many foods differently. TheseÂ adoptedÂ many names over the years such as ribbons, wands, bow ties, I just knew them as the friedÂ cookies with powdered sugar in themÂ as a child. I couldn’t eat enough of these growing up. OurÂ Aunt Mary (RIP)Â used to lived in Schenectady NY, where her sisterninlaw had a corner Italian bakery, she was most popular for her powdered sugaredÂ wands. Hand made, and amazingly delicious. Check out her recipe here.Â One of the first posts I ever made for this blog.
This new cookbook immediately got my attention when I saw their Regions version and I had to make them.. they are delicious too!
When I received my new cookbook I won from Claudia @Â Journey of an Italian Cook Â Â I had to tryÂ theseÂ fried cookiesÂ fron Veneto, we make theseÂ every Holiday.
Â Our version here Â were from the Region ofÂ Calabria theÂ style and recipe a little different in flavor, we used a little vanilla and wine in ours. What a nice change in flavor using oranges in this recipe below.
During this week I then again won another wonderful giveaway from http://theessenceofwomanhood.blogspot.com/ , so off I went to get my free flour to make these and stored in this beautiful container. Thank you ladies, I hope my viewers visit both your fabulous blogs~
ForÂ theÂ CalabriaÂ family version click here we called them ribbons or bows and use wine in our recipe. We actually twisted ours intoÂ a bow.Â Â Very similar. You will love how easy they are to make. The orange was a wonderful change, this ones a keeper! . Bye, have a great Sunday
