Organic Sicilian Almond Biscuits
Organic Sicilian Paste di Mandorla are typical Sicilian almond biscuits made using only organic ingredients of the highest quality and processed by hand as per tradition.
Almond paste can almost certainly be traced back to the Arabs, who introduced various rich and spiced dishes in Sicily.
So it must have been the Arabs who combined sugar and ground almonds and spread this recipe throughout Sicily.
However, a more reliable story is that of the eleventh century, when the monks and nuns of the Martorana Convent in Palermo, dedicated themselves to the preparation of sweets made using water, sugar and almonds.
These delicious Sicilian biscuits are also called “paste secche” or dry pastries. They have a soft heart, a delicate crunchy crust and are traditionally decorated with half a candied cherry or a whole almond.
The almonds used are the renowned sweet Sicilian almonds, that boast numerous important nutritional properties.
These organic Sicilian Paste di Mandorle biscuits are produced by supply chains that base their production on organic farming, without the use of preservatives or additional substances.
Sicilian almond biscuits, perfect for an indulgent moment of absolute sweetness, to regenerate the senses and immerse yourself in Sicilian confectionery traditions.
