Drop cookie recipes are the easier to make of my Italian cookie recipes. It's basically cookie recipes where you can drop the dough off the spoon and onto the cookie sheet to bake. No cutting. No shaping. No chilling the dough. Just plop, drop and bake. And before I get emails and postings on my facebook page - I realize not all of these recipes are just Italian cookies.
I'm a big fan of easy - and GREAT tasting. Not because I'm lazy. But because I can get things done in one single block of time. I've got grandkids now - and they don't want to take all day making fancy-pants cookies. There's a time and place for that. And that's the beauty of drop cookie recipes. They just plop and bake.

So, the good news is most of the main ingredients needed for most Italian dessert recipes are sitting in your cabinet or can be found in a *normal* supermarket. No fancy food shopping needed!
