"Brutti Buoni" - Almond Paste Cantucci
The Brutti ma Buoni (literally 'ugly but good') also known as "almond of San Clemente," are typical sweets of Prato. The recipe is very simple, involves the use of white almond, whipped egg whites, sugar and hazelnuts. With the dough, completely made by hand, are created small irregular spheres (hence the "ugly") on the edible sheet into the pan and are cooked in the oven. The distinctive features of this product are its sweetness, the intense flavor of almond and the different shape every time.
This delightful handmade cantuccio comes from the mixture of eggs, sugar and flour enriched with dark chocolate; these ingredients, expertly combined by skilled hands, give life to a soft and tasty dough. What makes this product unique is the fact that it retains the softness and irresistible sweetness of dark chocolate.
