Last Friday of the Month Recipe Featuring Tina Russo Radcliffe's Likamias and The Rosetti Curse

Tina, this sounds so yummy, I can't wait to try them ~L.A.

Italian No-Bake Cookies: Likamias (leak-a-mias)

This recipe is something that Tessa Rosetti from The Rosetti Curse would make!

2 cups sugar
½ cup cocoa
½ cup butter
½ cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
½ tsp. salt
3 cups quick oatmeal
1 cup shredded coconut

Bring vanilla, sugar, cocoa, butter, salt and milk to a bubbling boil. Boil for 2 minutes and no more. Remove from heat. At this point you have to work quickly so have your coconut and oatmeal measured out and ready to add. Stir fast.
Working quickly as chocolate will harden, drop onto waxed paper by teaspoon full. I use a small ice cream scoop. Makes 2 dozen large or 4 dozen small cookies.

Caveat: It is best not to make this on a humid day or the cookie will not harden. I ran out of quick oats and used regular this time, chewy but still delicious.

BLURB: The Rosetti Curse

A Romantic Comedy of Italian Proportions...

She may look good in black, but Tessa Rosetti is not testing the family curse again. Three generations of women buried the men they love and confirmed Tessa’s belief in the Rosetti Curse.

Los Angeles cop, Thomas Riley, arrives back home in Silver Ridge, Colorado, to settle his grandmother’s estate, but while he's there he stumbles into trouble in the night. If his suspicions are correct, someone's cooking up more than biscotti at the local cookie factory.

Together, Riley and Tessa renew their old bond and battle a curse that leads them on a journey of destiny to the love of a lifetime.

  2. Tina, this recipe looks yummy, what's not to love about it? All my favs and a taste of what the Rosetti Curse is about to book.

    Glad you're here today and thanks for the recipe. It's brrrrr and snow in Colorado.

  3. I thought January rang in DIETS!! Tina, this goodie is something I just can't pass up. And since humidity tends to mess up the end product, I shouldn't have any problem making them here in Colorado!
