ABOUT THE PRODUCT
Il Biscotto della Salute.
The Crispy Sweet Toasts are still prepared according to the original recipe of 1858 based on soft wheat flour, butter, eggs, sugar, fresh yeast, and sea salt, but above all without preservatives and without glucose syrup. The secret of the Crispy Sweet Toasts pleasant fragrance consists in the fact that once baked, the still soft bread is cut and left to rest for 24 hours; the slices are then toasted as to obtain the golden color and the typical crumbly and light consistency. The slices of toasted brioche bread are perfect served with butter, jam or peanut cream, or other ingredients for savory combinations such as mascarpone or robiola spread on top.
