What is Luscious, Golden and yummy?

ha ha many, many things!! BUT nothing is as luscious as the PANDORO…..

From the Veneto region, it is the regions equivalent of the Panattone.

I had some mini ones from the supermarket in Lucca and Venice but I knew they would not be like a homemade one.

The Italian supermarkets, sell huge boxes which have Pandoro in them but I still think, can’t beat homemade……

Cantucci and Vin Santo anyone?

Well I was staring at the Vin Santo the other day, dreaming of  Lucca,

As I do and thought it must be time for a non yeasty and it means I can indulge in my favourite things (one of my fav’s),

dipping the Cantucci into the Vin Santo and this recipe is blessed as it also had Vin Santo in it!!

But best of all , it is a recipe, like many others I use, that is a good base recipe for so many other adventures……..

Now I can see you people who are not Italian obsessed as moi, going “Cantucci??? What in the hell are they?” But when i say to you, “Biscotti”, I can see your eyes light up!! Yummy!!

So what are we aiming for? Yes, A double yolker!!  Fantastic luck!!

So let’s get beasty but not yeasty!!

Great luck to start with this!!
