Reginelle Sesame Cookies

Le Reginelle, also called “Biscotti Regina” or “Viscotta ‘nciminati” in Sicilian dialect, are crispy biscuits from the Palermo area. The peculiarity of the Reginelle is that their surface is entirely covered with sesame seeds, an element already very used in the decoration of Sicilian bread, which give it a dry, slightly toasted aroma. They’re incredibly good with Tea and Coffee!

After this time, put the stretch the dough in a 15 mm thick sheet, cut out about 5 cm long knobs and roll them well in the sesame seeds until almost covering their surface.

Then continue cooking at 150 ° for another 10-15 min so that the biscuits dry out well for their known dry aspect!
