Parmigiano Reggiano Savory Cookies: Italian Aperitivo Recipes

Did you ever taste Parmigiano cookies?

Often I store the dough into the freezer, ready to be cooked and eaten. Parmigiano cookies are one of my fav recipes for aperitivo or merenda party at home.

These savory cocktail cookies are perfect for your next Italian-style aperitivo.

I used chives with parmigiano, but you can substitute your favorite herbs or, leave out the herbs and just add a little more grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.

Parmigiano cookies are deliciously Italian!
