Biscotto. Mouth-watering baked treat.
Etymology: cookie in Italian comes from Latin biscoctus, “double cooked”.
Italy offers a vast array of cookies, and if you ever pay us a visit, make sure to taste them all!
I suggest: taralli, savoiardi, krumiri, cantucci, amaretti. I swear they are all delicious, so you’d better try them all! Watch your belly, though: they can be quite… calorici.
