TWD - Canistrelli

 



This week's Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Canistrelli.  These are little biscuits from the Corsican region of Italy.  

While these biscuits don't look like much, don't be fooled - they are absolutely delicious.  The biscuits are flavoured with licorice flavoured liqueur - in my case, Ouzo, as I did not have its Italian cousin.  The Ouzo was given to me many years ago by Ivy, and it came in handy.  Thanks Ivy!

The biscuits are rolled in sugar just before baking, giving them a crunchy coating.  

These biscuits are definitely a keeper.

  1. I do like a marinated and grilled shrimp that uses ouzo, so I'm thinking these could be tasty despite not liking black licorice. Dorie's recipes are worth a shot!!

    1. Hi Liz, the Ouzo is subtle and not very aniseedy at all.

  2. I've used Ouzo a couple of times and I bet these are good little biscuits!
