ARTISAN BISCOTTI IN THE MILANESE TRADITION
Like many Italian immigrants in the early 1900’s, my grandmother,
Maria Carpene, was an extraordinary woman. My fondest memories
revolve around baking with my Nonna. Cracking the eggs, rolling
the dough, preparing the pans were all magical tasks in my
grandmother’s tiny kitchen. My love of baking was born in these
humble surroundings and has continued for my entire adult life.
One of my favorite treats was my grandmother’s Anise Almond
Biscotti. All the varieties that we make are based on her original
recipe and I am proud to be able to bring you her exceptional
biscotti. The roots of her biscotti go back to Medieval times. The
residents of Milan (Milanese) fashioned a biscotti that was
different from much of Italy and therefore different than what most
Americans are familiar with. Made in pans, sliced, and second baked,
they more closely resemble the texture of cake, very different from
the rock hard cookies we are used to.
So I invite you to experience biscotti in the Milanese tradition.
All our biscotti are hand made with the finest ingredients and hand
crafted with care and love. I hope you enjoy these non-traditional
soft biscotti based on my Nonna’s original recipe, and I invite you
to make Sweet Mavens your new biscotti tradition. Alla salute!
My family’s recipe is like no other
biscotti you’ve ever tasted. Each variety is an all natural,
artisan product made with the finest ingredients and containing no
butter, trans fats, or preservatives.
Sweet Mavens Biscotti Rustica is a line of 100% whole grain,
tender biscotti. The earthy texture of whole wheat is combined
with other healthy ingredients to produce a biscotti of
exceptional quality and taste.
