In Italian folklore, La Befana is an old woman who delivers gifts to children throughout the country on Epiphany Eve – the night between 5 and 6 January. To celebrate the Epiphany or the “Befana” some families use to prepare “Befanini” biscuits. Animals, stars, hearts, witches, befanini usually have many different shapes and are made from a mixture of flour, eggs, milk, butter and orange zest with coloured sugar on top. Although Befanini come from the Lucca area, today you can find them throughout the Region. Is there a Tuscan biscuit that you have tried, and simply can’t forget?
