Enjoy a taste of Sicily with these soft almond cookies from Tumminello. They’re packed with almonds from the Sicilian town of Avola, whose nuts are renowned across Italy for their exceptional sweetness. The almonds are double-roasted and ground to bring out their intense aroma, and the cookies are flavored simply with local wildflower honey and a hint of cinnamon to let the almond essence shine.
A proudly Sicilian company, Tumminello uses ingredients sourced from their island home, from chocolate to dairy, olive oil, nuts, and citrus, to ensure the highest quality. It all started in 1977 in the medieval town of Castelbuono in the heart of Madonie regional park, a mountain haven for birds, rare butterflies, and wild orchids. There, sisters Arcangela and Rosa began baking biscuits and bread with the help of their husbands, and over the decades, they have been driven by their passion for baked goods to make “the best biscuits in the world.” Today, the family-run company employs modern tools and techniques in their artisan factory, carefully calibrated to respect and preserve their Sicilian home's traditional flavors and recipes.
