Hi there,

I came upon your post of 5-27-2020 while also searching for the divinity 
cookies from Lucci’s deli(now sadly closed). My Grandmother used to buy 
these cookies when I was a child (1980’s/90’s) at Hughes market in Burbank 
(also closed now). They are a very white cookie with tiny chocolate chips 
or even chopped up small pieces of chocolate. The texture is like a very 
dusty crumbly high fat shortbread at the exterior (like polvorones texture) 
and crunchy at the interior. The inside sometimes had air holes. My grandma 
passed away and I thought I would never taste those delicious cookies 
again until a coworker brought them to work one day from Lucci’s deli. 
Now they’re closed too and I fear I will never find a good recipe. 
I have tried making them with no real success. The texture is really 
specific and I just haven’t got it right. My grandma came from Italian 
heritage, and Lucci’s was an Italian market so I think they may be based 
on an Italian recipe. I really hope you can figure out what these cookies are!

Thank you,
