My late Grandma, Amelia DeFusco, made these cookies every Christmas and Easter. Totos (pronounced toh-TOH), which are ball shaped, come in two flavors, chocolate and lemon. They were made by most of the Italian grandmas in the Merrimack Valley region in Massachusetts—especially in the city of Lawrence. The origin of these cookies is not clear, but some think the name is a corruption of “tetu,” a chocolate spice cookie that hails from Sicily. The chocolate version is also similar to mostaccioli, except for the shape, and the lemon version is similar to anginetti.
