Delicious soft cookies hand made in the pastry shop of the Nanni family near Siena in Tuscany. This ancient recipe from the 1300s in Siena is unchanged today and tells us of the commercial power of Siena at the time with its imports of cinnamon, coriander, nutmeg, as well as the candied orange. Also known as "Morsetti" (little bites) in the coastal Tuscan medieval town of Massa Marittima not far from Siena.
