Biscotti fiori

(Flower shaped biscuit)

Home-made biscuit usually eaten in Spring or during Easter celebrations, it was typical of San Piero a Sieve and was normally eaten by dipping it in "vinsanto" or with coffee.

  • 1 kilo of flour
  • 450 gr. of sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 small bags of yeast

Make a mixture with these ingredients and work it for a long time, then prepare the biscuits on a tin giving them a flower shape. With this pasta people used to prepare a cake which had the shape of a small basket or an holy water front and it was usually placed in young's bedrooms.
