reginelle

sesame biscuits

The 'little queens' of Sicilian biscuit-dom (also known as sesamini) are said to date back to the Arab occupation of the island in the 9th century. The classic recipe today features honey and lard, which gives them a unique texture.

Reginelle is also the name of a form of pasta, similar to penne.
