Authentic Italian Desserts

Lisa Gianotti

Authentic Italian desserts is a collection of Italian dessert recipes that I bake over and over for my family. This page is an index of all the recipes on this site. This is commonly referred to as a site map. It's a non-fluffy-word-page, where the recipes are listed in by categories - and the photo gallery to the right will lead you to the recipe. You do have to click on the photo to get to the recipe. Nothing fancy or frilly on this page. It's just here to guide you to the many Italian dessert recipes that are begging to come out of your kitchen!

The most popular during the holiday season is the Italian cookie recipes.

Making Italian desserts doesn't require special skills or freaky food ingredients. Dive in and try one of these recipes. You will get hooked and bake more. Because really there's not much to it. We are like any other culture - we flavor with the same ingredients over and over and over and over and over and over.... Thanks for stopping by -
