Biscotto meaning and pronunciation
Cookie in Italian is translated as biscotto, which could be very literally translated as “double cooked”. It is a masculine noun.
Etymology: cookie in Italian comes from the Latin word biscoctus, “double cooked”.
Its pronunciation is similar to bees-kot-toh. Make sure not to add a -w sound to the final -o. Italian vowel sounds are clean.
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.
