ITALIAN-AMERICAN: Pittsburgh does it big!! 24,000 cookies made by December 7, 2013 - St. Rita's Parish - Photos, Recipes and Videos

With her husband in tow, Rita Pratt said that she 

buys about  800 pounds of flour;

 400 pounds each of powdered 

and granulated sugar and 120 dozen 

eggs for the pizzelles, biscotti and knots.


Pizzelles came originally from 

the Abruzzo section of Italy 



Biscotti came originally from 

the Genoa (Liguria) section of Italy (first recipe), 

however very popular in all of Italy (variations from 

Catalonia and Tuscany, etc.) 


Knots came originally from 

the Calabria section of Italy
