pistoccus de cappa

soft decorative biscuits

Rolled into long cords of dough, shaped into hearts, horses, etc, then glazed, these soft crumbly cookies are a favourite of Sardinian bambini, whose mothers would bake them along with the weekly bread. They are also made for Easter, especially in the lower Campidano region.
