Pizzicati (Italian Pinch Cookies)

Pizzicati are delicate Italian shortbread cookies filled with jam. Sometimes called biscotti pizzicati or simply pinch cookies, the jam-filled cookies are not too sweet and beautiful on a dessert tray.

How to Store and Freeze Pizzicati

If you’re anything like me, you like to get a head of a big gatherings. If you’re in that camp, then you’re in luck. Make a batch of cookies. Bake them off, let them cool, then pop them in the freezer.

To store: Simply layer the cooked pinch cookies between sheets of parchment, place them in an airtight container in the freezer. When ready transfer then to your serving platter and dust with a little powdered sugar.

  • ¼ cup (60 g) powdered sugar, plus more for dusting
  • ¼ cup (60g) cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
