crunchy Corsican biscuits

Des canistrelli aux grains d’anis

Canistrelli are a classic treat, both for children or for adults over a cup of coffee—and they’re also good for vegans as they contain no dairy products: ingredients are olive flour, oil, white wine, sugar and baking powder, flavoured with anis seed, or almonds or lemon.

Other names include cuggioles, cuggiulelles and cujuelles.
