DiCamillo Baking Co., Inc.
Offered in our plastic resealable economy packs.
These cookies trace their origins to Sicilian bakers and their rich blending of European and Arab baking traditions. There are countless interpretations of this cookie but it is the fig-filling that is its most important component: a blend of fig, orange, spices which perfectly displays the genius of the Sicilian baking tradition. This rich fig-jam is rolled into a tender cookie shell and cut into tubes.
Traditionally, they were formed in a curved bracelet-shape, the source for part of the name "Buccellati", which means “small bracelet”. It is Cuccidati, however, that is the name most widely used by Sicilian Americans. They are an indispensable, nostalgic cookie for generations of Sicilian Americans.
Our Buccellati Cuccidati have kept alive this tradition. Made entirely by hand, these fruit filled cookies are complex and delicious.

The Di Camillo Bakery is nationally recognized for providing some of the finest biscotti and Italian Cookies available. The 2019/2020 Di Camillo collection includes some of the most extensive and varied collections of award-winning Biscotti and Italian Cookies. Our Biscotti Di Vino wine cookies were the spark that ignited the explosion in the cookie aisles of America and helped launch the whole new Biscotti sensation. Introduced in 1979 to the gourmet stores of New York City they set in motion what The New York Times later christened “The Biscotti Decade.”
In addition to this iconic wine biscotti we have many of the classics of the Italian biscotti and cookie menu. Our Biscotti Di Prato, the almond-studded, twice-baked biscotti which has come to define the American concept of biscotti, was rated #1 in the definitive New York Times nationwide taste test. This classic is completely authentic and made without any added fat.
Our menu includes other classics such as : Biscotti Amaretti (crisp almond paste macaroons), Crumiri (Krumiri) corn meal butter cookies-- sometimes referred to as polenta cookies, Biscotti Regina (sesame seed coated cookies), Cucidati Bucellati (Sicilian fig-filled cookies), Pizzelle (pressed-waffle cookies), and Coconut Macaroons.
Nor does the Di Camillo Bakery menu stop with just the classics: we have added double-chocolate Biscotti di Prato, made with the classic formula but with cocoa and chocolate chips added. Also popular are our chocolate-dipped Biscotti Di Prato, and Chocolate-Enrobed Biscotti Di Prato. Further, our menu includes our Cherry Almond Butter Biscotti and our Lemon Butter Biscotti. Our Pasticcini di Burro, is a shortbread-like butter cookie with walnuts, and our Grocci di Cioccolato, has chocolate chips added to this butter walnut cookie.
