“These cookies are brittle and dry like old bones. They are made all over Italy around November 1 and 2 to celebrate All Souls' Day, in remembrance of deceased relatives. Don't let their name turn you off. They are unusual to look at, delicious to eat, and a real conversation piece. Serve with wine or your favorite ice cream. They are also a great accent to a good cup of coffee. These cookies have to rest OVERNIGHT before baking. I did not include this in the prep time, I did account for 10 minutes of baking per dozen.
