Dunkers AKA Savoiardi Cookies

One of many special memories that I had as a kid was what my Nonna offered us for breakfast when we had sleepovers.  We didn’t have sugary breakfast cereals like Captain Crunch. Instead, we got to have a home baked cookie called Savoirdi which we could dunk into coffee.  Dunking these hard cookies into your coffee in the morning served two purposes.  Firstly, it was straight up delicious; and secondly, the sugar from the cookie often made your black coffee sweeter, win-win. This recipe is a go-to that any family should have. It also makes quite a bit so that you can always freeze them and bring them up when your supply is low or when you have company.
