: My grandmother was from Castel Di Ieri (born 1898) She used to make these cookies with cici beans and chocolate in a half moon pastry. They were delicious! Does anyone have this receipe? Anyone from Castel Di Ieri?

: Thanks!

My husband was born in Castiglione a Casauria (1957). My mother-in-law makes these cookies but only at Christmas and I love them! She doesn't use ceci beans but she does use chocolate, chopped almonds, crushed cookies, and jelly. Sorry I don't have an exact recipe because she doesn't measure. I have to watch and take notes several times before I can duplicate her recipes. She also uses a variation of this filling as a filling between two pizzelle cookies to make a sandwich cookie but again, only at Christmas.
