  • Need Cookie Recipe Stella Doro

    Stella Doro has closed their doors and I cannot live without their breakfast

    treat cookies. They are in the shape of an S..Does anyone have anything

    that comes even close to this recipe. I have many biscotti recipes but

    none like the S cookie. Thanks...Floria

    Wow, I had no idea that Stella Doro was shutting down!  I don't have a recipe, but this will get you back to the first page for more exposure.

    Found this via Google, I have not tried it:

    Recipe for Stella D'oro Breakfast Treat Cookies?

    Those s-shaped "breakfast" cookies from Stella D'oro, does anyone know a recipe for them?

    Or if not, can someone at least tell me their original Italian name (if there is one), anything like that would be greatly appreciated.

    I ate those cookies when I was a kid, and I really want some now! And I'd like to know how to make them, or if not at least to know what they were orginally called.

    Best Answer - Chosen by Voters


    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 pinch salt
    6 eggs
    1 1/2 cups white sugar
    6 tablespoons vegetable oil
    1 teaspoon anise extract


    1. Preheat oven to 375.

    2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder; set aside.
    In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs until they are light and fluffy.
    Gradually add sugar and beat for about 3 minutes.
    Stir in the oil and anise extract.
    Fold in the dry ingredients and blend well. Spread the mixture into a 9x13 inch pan and bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the oven.

    3. When the pan cools slightly, cut the cookie down the middle, lengthwise.
    Cut each half into 1/2 inch slices.
    Place slices onto a cookie sheet and return to the oven long enough to brown on each side, like toast. Watch so you don't burn them!

    4. Store in a tightly covered container.

    FYI Stella Doro is not closed down. I am not sure who gave you that information.

    I am also in search of this recipe, the cookies taste as though they also have almond extract in them, though the description only says it has a vanilla flavor. I have a bag sitting here of the breakfast cookies now. I will try the recipe posted as well but it doesnt sound exactly right.
