Our Pandolcino is a small round pastry, a totally original shortcrust pastry as it does not contain butter but only our Olive Oil. Golden and soft, it is rich in sweet raisins, pine nuts and natural candied fruit - orange and cedar peel. A completely natural recipe, without sulfites, preservatives, aromas and colorings, for a sweet and inviting taste.
The fragrance recalls a freshly baked sweet bread with the sweet and citrus aroma hinting of the filling inside.
