Ok, I'm going to go get Fontina cheese on my lunch break. I didn't get a chance to check out the last two posts until now (8/17) so my comment is a bit late. Definately doing the veal, I mean, PORK tomorrow with the prosciutto. Wow, this is just an awesome idea and inspiration for me. Thanks, Suz.

These look like they would be great for breakfast.


Yes! For breakfast with espresso from my fancy new maker (Thanks, Boog).


Mmmm...these would be great for breakfast! They are much closer to a pastry than a cookie.

My great grandmother and grandmother called these Torchette. I've discovered that they are called Torcetti al burro. In the Piedmont region, these cookies are made thinner. It's interesting that Nick Malgieri called them "Twisted cookies".


Thanks for sharing, Rene! Your family must have some great recipes! Its so interesting how many Italian regional recipes can actually be found in different forms in many of the surrounding regions as well.
