Anginetti Cookies Servings – 4 dozen Prep Time – 20 Minute Cook Time – 12 Minutes Ingredients:


  • 6 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 4 large eggs

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons baking powder

  • Pinch salt

  • 2 teaspoon lemon, orange, anise or almond flavoring

  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice, omit if using other flavoring besides lemon or orange


  • 1 ½ cups confectioners’ sugar

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, or flavoring of choice

  • 1/4 milk, using tablespoons at a time



In a bowl, beat the eggs until they are pale yellow. Add the sugar and vanilla and beat until thick and light-colored. Add the oil and milk, and lemon juice if using, beating well to combine.

Sift the flour and baking powder together and stir into the egg mixture.

The dough will be soft; wrap it in wax paper and refrigerate for at least one hour.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease three cookie sheets.

Place the dough on a well-floured surface. Knead dough for about 5 minutes, or until smooth and no longer sticky.

Break off egg-size pieces of dough and roll or snake coil into balls. Place the dough balls one inch apart on the cookie sheets.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until lightly colored and firm to the touch.

Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool slightly before frosting.


Combine the sugar, milk and vanilla (or flavoring of choice) and stir until smooth.

While the cookies are still warm, dip the top of each cookie in the frosting. Place the cookies on racks to let the frosting dry before storing. Sprinkle with nonpareils, jimmies, or other holiday decorations if desired.

Cookies will keep in an airtight container for up to one week or frozen for up to three months.

"Sprinkle with colorful dragees, place on decorative tray, wrap with cellophane and a bow. Makes a great gift, or a pretty potluck dessert tray! This cookie is my most popular and is requested yearly for the holidays whether it be Christmas or Easter!"
