The team at Yummly — a recipe recommendation website and app — has released a list of the most popular Christmas cookies in each state.

Yummly’s “The United States of Holiday Cookies” says the Italian Anisette cookie is the most popular in Massachusetts.

Here’s what Yummly had to say: “The anisette cookies Bay Staters picked out are very much Italian. As one of the most Irish states in the country, you might have been expecting something with Celtic flavor, but Massachusetts has a sizable Italian population, too. In fact, Boston has the 4th largest Italian population, which might explain the enthusiasm for anisette cookies.”
