Paste di Meliga
Paste di Meliga are crunchy and golden biscuits, typical of the Cuneo valleys and other areas of Monregalese, Pamparato and Vicoforte. The ancient recipe, with very finely ground corn flour, favors the creation of a crumbly biscuit. Traditionally, meliga cookies are enjoyed alone with zabajone or with passito wine, moscato or dolcetto. Tradition has it that Cavour also finished the meal with two cornmeal cookies and a drop of Barolo Chinato.
Type 0 soft wheat flour, butter, raw cane sugar, whole corn flour (15%), egg white, egg yolk, honey (0.5%), natural flavoring.
Pasticcini are small Italian cookies that border on the line of fine pastries, but generally eaten with a cup of espresso or hot tea. Typical dessert of the Ligurian tradition, it originates in Torriglia, a town in the Ligurian mountains and dates back to at least the sixteenth century. Unmistakable for its characteristic "scalloped" circular shape on the outside and with a hole in the center. An exquisite and fragrant flower with an unmistakable vanilla aroma, a crumbly and grainy texture, yellow in color and whose shape recalls that of the coins of the ancient Genoese fiefdoms as a symbol of abundance and prosperity. These small bite sized cookies are sprinkled with the finest powdered sugar, ready to eat, or can be dressed up with what you have from the market, a fruity jam, nut spread or whipped cream and berries.
Type "0" wheat flour, sugar, vegetable fats (coconut, cacao butter, and sunflower), butter, corn flour, egg yolk, salt, natural flavors.
Soft Amaretti Cookies
Amaretto cookies are apart of the Ligurian-Piedmontese confectionery tradition stretching back to as long as anyone can remember. And is in fact part of a culturally protected tradition. Baratti and Milano's amaretti cookies are unmistakable with its pronounced almond aroma, which remains soft and fragrant. The famous dolcetto is born from the combination of sweet and bitter almonds: amaretto. A fragrant specialty, the soft amaretto owes its particular consistency to the combination of a few selected ingredients and to the perfect cooking. The Baratti & Milano recipe treasures this artisan tradition, offering amaretto with a typical bitter-sweet aroma, soft and fragrant for a long time.
Ingredients: Sugar, egg white, almonds (23%), apricot almonds (23%), preservative: potassium sorbate, natural flavors.
