An innovative baker created these diamond-shaped cookies in 14th-century Siena. We’re thrilled they did! The soft essence of orange zest combined with the chewy almond center makes them an undeniable favorite, especially at Christmas. The rough crackled surface is lightly sprinkled with powdered sugar making it the perfect dessert cookie for any occasion. Serve with a sweet dessert wine such as Vin Santo or Moscadello di Montalcino. Decadente!
Italy’s Christmas cookies, the Ricciarelli have an intense almond flavor.
A spritz of lemon zest, and a light sugary coating highlight Ricciarellis, named after a 14th-century knight who enjoyed these delicacies because they reminded him of the Middle East! Best with a glass of Vin Santo or other dessert wine produced to enhance the grapes’ natural sugars. Eccelente!
