three breasted cookie from Frascati


Frascati's pupazze, made with honey, oil and orange flavouring, are said to represent mammana, the women who become pregnant during the wine harvest, and so have in addition to two milky breasts have an extra one filled with the good wine of Frascati. Originally made for the Christmas holidays, but now available all year round.
