Flour and sugar are cheap. Maybe look for a sweet bread recipe you could use them in and start over. I'm not a baker but I would assume it's a pretty important step. If they don't turn out you will have wasted all the ingredients plus your time. And possibly have to put up with a bunch of " I told you so's" from your mom.

A member of our family decided to make cookies. Measured all the ingredients into a large bowl and then mixed. That person had the strength to mash all that stuff together at once. Dough looked just same as mine, cookies came out just same as mine. I guess I could put everything in a food mixer and come out with the same. Isn't going to work with everything but it might work for you and your Italian cookies.

the texture will be a little different, but go ahead and make them. the sugar crystals dissolve after being beaten into the eggs. in this case the crystals will likely remain. letting the dough sit for an hour or so may help, but i think they'll be just fine.

Thank you, everyone, for your help. We went ahead and made the cookies and we saw nor tasted any difference. I thought mom would be angry, but she wasn't. I am sure this would not work for every recipe, but for this particular recipe, it seemed to make no difference. They looked and tasted the same - thanks for all of your responses! I really appreciate it!
