Italian Cookies= I have a problem

Fortunately we live in the NY area which most likely has as high of a concentration of Italians as does Italy.
With that comes amazing food and of course, baked goods.
This is where it becomes unfortunate... for me.
I have a problem. I have NEVER met a cookie I didn't like and it is near impossible for me to ever have just one.
Especially Italian cookies.
I consider cannolies a cookie, especially the mini's. Luckily the richness of the creme deters me from having too many.
Ah, the Italian Christmas cookies... they are like bread. I could easily consume a dozen of these,
The knot cookies are basically the same.
And the lemon ricotta cookies?
Heaven. Pure heaven.
all these pics were not taken by ME! borrowed from google images :)

Beautiful cookies! I'm starting to get the baking bug, it is that time of year! You must have read my mind.

Would you believe I have never had a canolli! I will have to find a good bakery in the city and get some!

I snagged a few of these beauties when I was in NYC down in little Italy.

If I lived there, I would need an intervention.

I am sad that as I look at those amazing pictures I do not have one cookie in the house. I want to have a cookie right now. Bye
