Neapolitan Christmas Biscuits
These traditional Neapolitan biscuits have been around for centuries and are normally prepared at Christmas time. The name comes from ‘mosto’ as this was traditionally used to sweeten them. They are made in the classical diamond shape and sold in confectionery shops all over the region. For me, they symbolise Christmas and I always make sure I have some to remind me of home.
I have given you a large quantity because it was always traditional in Italy to make lots and give them away to family and friends as gifts. You don’t have to make the full quantity but if you do, you can always freeze the dough. To give them more of a Christmas twist, I have made them into star shapes.
