Ingredients
  • Dough
  • 5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • Icing
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Multi-colored nonpareils, optional
  • 3 cookie sheets or jelly roll pans covered with parchment paper
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and set racks in upper and lower thirds.

  • For the dough, combine the flour and baking powder, stirring well to mix. Whisk the eggs in a bowl, then whisk in all the remaining ingredients in order. Fold in the flour mixture.

  • Turn dough out on a floured surface and knead lightly to mix. Separate into 16 equal pieces. Roll each to an 8-inch rope, then into a circle. Place 5 or 6 on each pan.

  • Bake the taralli about 30 to 40 minutes, or until well puffed and deep golden. Cool on racks.

  • For the icing, combine all ingredients in a saucepan and heat gently until lukewarm. Brush over the tops of the cooled cookies. Sprinkle with multi-colored nonpareils, if desired.
