My Italian grandmother always made glazed chocolate cookies every Christmas. She, as well as many, if not most of the Italian women who lived in or around Lawrence called them toh-doh. Don't ask me the correct spelling for that word, because I don't have a clue. Italians from The North End as well as others I have spoken to have never heard of these delightful cookies.

So, can anyone tell me how to spell the name of this cookie? In what area of Italy they originate from? If there is another name for this type of cookie?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
