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.
