Tortellini Dolci al Forno (Emilian Fruit-Stuffed Christmas Cookies)
Not to be confused with the pasta of the same name, these classic Emilian Christmas cookies are made from a tender, flaky dough filled with a sweet-tart trio of fruit: cherry preserves, rich saba (cooked-down grape must), and candied citron.
Dough can be made up to 3 days ahead and refrigerated until ready to use. Fully cooled baked cookies may be kept in an airtight container at room temperature up to 2 days. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
Saba is available at amazon.com. Candied citron is available at paradisefruitco.com.
