Offella Cookies

It has been a while, but now we are back dedicating a recipe to our fans & friends who deserve a nice treat.

Today we want to honor Mr Shining Star (translation of his Italian surname) with a home-made recipe.

Mr Shining Star is finally not so shining. He is a bit of a pessimist person who always sees the glass half empty. When you ask him ”How do you do?” usually he answers: ” Very bad, thanks. And if you ask me again in ten minutes, it will be even worse”.

BUT he brings a rogue wave of happiness wherever he goes. Is it because of his smile? Or maybe because of his Donald Duck’s voice mimicking? Or is it because of his coffee-style energy?

Who knows… What I know is that he can always make us smiling, and when he doesn’t succeed, then he gives away on of his Offella cookies and life is wow again!

BTW, here is the recipe for Offellas:


180 gr Butter
1 Egg
150 gr Sugar
Grated lemon rind
A pinch of salt
250 gr Flour
50 gr Corn starch
1 Tablespoon olive oil

Recipe: Mix all the ingredients, then put the dough in the fridge for about an hour. Then turn the dough out onto a well-floured surface and pat it down into a rough rectangle, about an inch thick. Cut dough into biscuits using a floured glass or biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on a cookie sheet and bake until golden brown, approximately 10 to 12 minutes at 190 degrees.
