Canestrelli Cookies
A little bit of history of Canestrelli; this cookie is originally from Liguria in Italy and has the shape of the Daisy flower.
Canestrelli were already famous during Medieval time, people use to gift this cookies during weddings and religious ceremony.
The recipe for this cookie is very simple. Basic ingredients that we all have at home, flour, icing sugar, butter or margarine, lemon zest, vanilla and eggs. 
If you find yourself in Liguria more precisely in Torriglia Val Trebbia during May you will be able to attend the festival of the Canestrelli, where on the main road of Torriglia all the historical bakeries will make you try this delicious cookie.
   Canestrelli with jam
My kids have decided that our Canestrelli will have the shape of heart to show me how much they love me….so sweeeeeeeet.
What they also asked me to do was to spread dairy free hazelnut cream and jam between cookies….according to them they taste even better than the simple one…..I have to agree with them….absolutely divine.
