Called "cucidati," the Sicilian term for "little bracelets," these luscious little pastries are more than just fig-filled biscuits. A rich cookie shell, topped with rock sugar and colored nonpareils, surrounds a fig paste enhanced with apricot, almonds, raisins, semisweet chocolate, and a little rum, for a soft, dense cookie we can’t wait to enjoy. Made in small batches by a third-generation Italian family who saved original family recipes and now live in the U.S. 7-8 cookies per 6.5 oz. package.

  • Dense and delicious fig-paste cookie

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sicilian lost art My Sicilian Grandmother made these cookies and, since she died many years ago, I have not been able to find them. These fig bars were fresh and delicious. Brought back lots of memories especially at the holidays. My 94 year old father enjoyed the package we bought for him also! Will definitely buy them again next year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cookies a little on the hard side The receiver said the cookies were a little on the hard side. While this wasn't a major problem as he likes to soak the cookies in his coffee. I was a little concerned for him to tell me that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very Merry Christmas gift for my father! Getting a Christmas gift for my father is an annual challenge. My Mother gave me a 'Cuckoo Clock' from the Vermont Country store, and I looked through the catalogue. I was very intrigued by the Sicilian Fig Biscuits, especially since my father is Sicilian and was raised in a bakery in New York, since his father was a pastry chef who was born in Sicily. What a find! My father absolutely adored the “cucidati”, which was a word he hadn't heard in many a decade. This will be an annual tradition for my family during Christmas!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fig filled pastries These little fig pastries are packed with a delicious fig filling that is not skimpy. I like the crispness of the pastry rather than being doughy. I would buy this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good! I absolutely loved these cookies. They had such an old world taste, with no phony flavors. I brought these to a New Year's Eve party and they didn't last long! If you want to bring these to an event, buy double so you can have some for yourself!
