What will the carretto siciliano carry to you and your friends this year?
There are many sweet treats (dolcetti) for Christmas at Dolcetti Pasticceria.
This year all the dolcetti have been wrapped in subtle, neutral colours and packed in wooden boxes. They look very attractive.
And as you would expect, everything is delicious.
There is something for everyone.
New treats too.
These are new as well.
Sicilian favourites: Pipparelli…I love the pepper in these biscuits.
Sicilian favourites: Ciascuni
Sicilian favourites: Gigiolena (also Giuggulena)…sesame seeds and sugar and honey. Arabic or Sicilian?
And Marianna and her angels are still mixing fruit mince for the mince pies. We live in Australia after all.
