ISO green pink and white fluffy cookie

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I don't know if this is the place to post this since we mostly do frosted cut-outs, but maybe somebody knows what this cookie is.

It's a three colored cookie that was about an inch thick, kind of shaped like a really thick lady finger, and must have had three different colored doughs smushed together so they kind of marbled. However, it was light as air which is what threw me off, almost the consistency of cake but a bit harder. And it had a sweet white glaze covering it.

My friend brought it back from a business trip for me and can't remember what its name is.

TIA!!

Are petit fours the square chocolate covered cake pieces? If they are then it wasn't that. When I picked it up it was deceivingly light and when I pushid into it it was almost the texture of a marshmallow that had been left out in the air for a day or so. But it was a cookie. Not at all a cookie texture. It was so freaking good! It's killing me that I don't know what it is! And i don't even know what to Google to find out. That's the sad part, lol. Usually I can find anything!

Yes, petit fours are the square, icing-covered cake pieces.

Now I'm stumped. I hope someone has the answer!

I've seen those and I think they're either called Venetians, Neopolitans or Italian Christmas Cookies. The ones I've seen most often were red, white and green -- the colors of the Italian flag -- but I've also seen the pink. HTH!

There is also something called a spumoni cookie; it isn't "fluffy." This is more of an icebox / slice and bake cookie.

Thank you for posting those links Honey, but it wasn't any of those. It defiently wasn't sliced. It was like they took three little balls of dough, pink green and plain, and smushed it into one big ball and then baked it. They marbled together and were really light and fluffy, not like the consistency of a regular cookie. I am completly stumped but I MUST have this recipe!!! Lol!!

Thanks 7yyrt. It is looking closer to what it was. I'm off to look up Neopolitan cookies. I know they call for pistachios and these didn't have any nuts, but maybe if I could at least get the batter down I could tweak it later. Thanks!

Where was your friend while on the business trip? Maybe it's a regional specialty and can be found doing some searches in that geographic area.

We have a big fluffy looking cookie - similar to the one in the photo - that I've seen in the grocery store in the Mexican food aisle. I can't recall the brand name tho.

Are you sure they were cookies? The way you describe the center sounds like a meringue or a pavlova.

That's exactly what I was thinking!

Your description of the texture reminded me of a Stella D'Oro cookie called Anginetti. These are not colored, though. Maybe you can buy a pack to taste. My regular grocery sells them, but you might need to go to an Italian market.

Here is a recipe for them (I've never made myself):

If you read the second review down from the recipe, there is more info that may help you.

Please let us know what you find out; they sound delicious!

Here's another recipe on another site:
