* I have a very nice neighbor named Theresa. It was she who gave me the yellowed sheet of paper with the precious recipe of these cookies. She believes that it was her grandfather who had noted it for his wife and mother, as both of them ran a coffee shop and a small hotel at the time (around year 1900).
