In another group, le ciambelle, was mentioned as a type of cookie. Several sites I looked at described it as a "ring cake." Another said it was "the closesest thing that italy has to a donut," but none of them described it as a "cookie." I am not certain how I would describe it, but probably not "cookie."It is obviously a "baked good," but beyond that, I am not sure. Is it a cookie, a ring cake, a donut, a quick bread, what?
