Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Apple cake (Torta di mele)

    • Astrid5555 on October 21, 2018

      I did not trust the method mentioned in the recipe, so I started off by creaming butter and sugar, adding the egg yolks one by one, then alternating milk and flour, folding in the whipped egg whites and then the apples. Final cake was moist with a very tender crumb. Very good!

  • Almond pie (Crostata alle mandorle)

    • leilx on September 02, 2019

      Good pie. Very fragrant while baking. Easy to make. However I hated the crust recipe which was super soft and hard to work with. Tasted good though. I made it without chocolate and one of my tasters suggested it would be good with chocolate.

Publishers Text

Rosemary Molloy presents authentic recipes passed down from her Italian relatives, bringing quintessential Italian desserts to your table. She brings authenticity to each creation, drawing on her experience as a Canadian living in Rome for the past 20 years.

Molloy guides readers to best capture the flavors of Italia by keeping each recipe simple, delicious and always true to Italian tradition. We’ve all heard of the classic biscotti, with its crunch and dunkable shape, but Molloy opens up the world of Italian cookies with dreamy morsels like Double Chocolate Lady Kiss Cookies or Italian Butter Cookies that melt in your mouth and pair perfectly with melted chocolate. Regional ingredients are highlighted with recipes like Siena’s Almond Cookies or the traditional Pear Cake, with its delicious crown of caramelized pears and base of fluffy mascarpone cake.
