Following the original recipe, Matilde Vicenzi brings you a classic from Italy’s culinary history: Cantuccini, timeless cookies that revive the taste of Tuscany’s pastry tradition.
The name “cantucci” most likely dates back to the 16th century, and seems to derive from the Latin “cantellus” which means “piece of bread”.
In fact, according to tradition, cantucci were originally off-cuts from the sweet loaves that bakers would sell to their wealthiest customers. The discarded portion would be eaten by peasant families, and was called the “cantuccio” or “canto”, which means “on the corner”.
