Often referred to as “Biscotti Regina” this classic of the Sicilian baker reveals the Moorish influences that abound in the baking traditions of this island. The use of sesame seeds is often traced to the Sacarcens who ruled Sicily for hundreds of years. We have added butter in place of lard and slightly scented the dough with whole anise seed. Long strings of dough are hand-rolled, then rolled-again in a sesame-seed-and-syrup coating, and finally cut into “fingers”. They are wonderful with liquors and sweet wines as well as all hot beverages.
