I'm not even sure if there is such a thing as an Italian Pretzel Cookie, in any case I decided to make up my own version.

I took a Taralli Dolci dough and dipped it in chocolate.

Fatto! Vi do... Josie's Italian Pretzel Cookies.

  1. Line 3 cookie sheets or jelly roll pans with parchment paper.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and set racks in upper and lower thirds.
  3. In a medium sized bowl whisk together the flour and baking powder.
  4. In a separate bowl lightly whisk the eggs then add sugar and continue whisking until sugar appears to be well incorporated into the eggs.
  5. Finally add melted butter and vanilla and continue whisking.
  6. Place the dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly making sure all the ingredients have been incorporated well.
  7. Separate into 1 oz pieces. Roll each piece into an 8-inch rope, then form each rope into a circle. Place cookies on each pan.
  8. Bake the taralli until puffed and golden, about 14 - 16 minutes. Cool on racks
  9. Melt chocolate chips and shortening using a double broiler or in the microwave.
  10. Then carefully dip pretzel bottoms in the melted chocolate
