The baked mezzaluna cookies can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 2 days or wrapped tightly in plastic and frozen for up to 2 weeks. Thaw at room temperature before serving.
This is the 1st time I've ever heard of someone else switching the cookie sheets in the oven. 1/2 way through baking, you pull the bottom one out, turn it around, move it to the top, & put the new pan on the bottom. Continue. It's like a production line. My Italian Granny Vi baked cookies (& bread & everything else) like you wouldn't believe! We bought her 2- 55 gallon garbage cans that she kept in her dining room. One full of sugar, the other w/ flour, & miles of plastic wrap & foil. We would have to refill the cans full of sugar & flour 2X's between Halloween & Christmas. All of the neighborhood kids would come over & help her decorate the cookies. She even had a cool room w/ shelving to store them all in until she could give them away. People would come & visit just because they knew they would be going home w/ a plate full of cookies! Great memories! Thanks ~sRead More
