Italian Chocolate Cookies

In Italy, these cookies are known as mostaccioli cookies and vary in ingredients, shape and legend depending on the region. Originally they were made to celebrate the grape harvest, using grape must (fresh squeezed grape juice) as a sweetener. It seems the desired outcome is the common thread between the many variations: a chewy, cake-like holiday cookie.
