San Giuliano, snuggled between Siracusa and Catania on the southeastern coast of Sicily, first grabbed our attention at a Slow Foods Salone del Gusto in Turin, Italy. We fell hard for their marmalades, so it’s no surprise these biscuits wowed us as well. Made from oranges grown on the estate, flour, butter and sugar these biscuits are more akin to what we might think of as cookies. You can see pieces of orange zest in every sugar sprinkled wafer. The aroma is light, orange-y and clean, and the flavor follows suit exactly.
These biscuits are the perfect vehicle for fresh cheeses, like ricotta or goat cheese, and more. Sweet and nutty, they’re easy to enjoy with tea or coffee in the afternoon. Great for late night snacks when accompanied by a glass of milk or with a little bit of vanilla gelato between two biscuits to make the best ice cream sandwich!
