With December approaching, my Italian thoughts always turn to torcetti, the Italian pastry I grew up with. So for this “fifth Friday” bonus post, I’m giving you the recipe again, via my original torcetti post last year.
I’m also including a link to another blog with a torcetti recipe–however, it is in Romanian. I could not resist sharing it because of the beautiful finished product. I have never used chocolate on mine, but might try it after seeing this.
Do you have an Italian Christmas tradition–food, religious observance, family activity–that you love? Please tell me about it in the comments!
I really liked eating Torcetti this year at Xmas because I knew you, Dy and grandma made it together. Vienna, I also have a friend from Italy that lives here and he had never heard of Torcetti. . but I think this is because he is from Northern Italy.
I did not find a lot of torcetti in Italy either–maybe a regional specialty, but I’m glad it’s part of our family tradition!
I have just noticed a strong resemblance with Great Grandma Josephine and Aunt Betty! Don’t know why I didn’t see that before.
Wow, I see what you mean! Are you looking up the torcetti recipe?? :)
your original torcetti post seems to not be working :(
Thanks, Jennie–I think I have fixed it now.
I went to four Italian bakery’s in little Italy today, none of them had even heard of Torcetti. I was very disappointed!!
Guess you will have to make your own! I hope you referred those bakeries to my blog to get the recipe. :)
