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 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! January 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! January 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by If you like figs, you'll like these I liked them so much I had to restrain myself from eating more than one the day they arrived. January 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! January 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Substitute for Homemade! My family made this cookie, pronounced "cooch-ah-dah-tee", most every Christmas when I was a kid, and I've made them a few times as an adult. But, they are a ton of work, you should grind the filling a few days in advance, then make the dough in batches, cut out shapes, add filling, bake, then finish with icing or sprinkles, that's just the basics! So, when I saw these offered and I wasn't up to making them homemade, I tried them for the first time last year. They are very close to what I am used to and they have been very fresh and tasty both years I've had them. This year I gave each of my brothers a package for gifts, they helped make for a very Buon Natale!! January 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Christmas Memories My Aunt Carmen always made fig rings at Christmas and I have always loved them so much. Saw these and thought I would give them a try - they are WONDERFUL - just wish more came in a package. Loved every bite! Great with coffee anytime! January 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by happy friend I have a friend who was born in Sicily and came here at age 14. Her mother and sister used to make these cookies during the holidays, but she never had their patience or skill for baking. Sadly, they've both passed away and she has a rough time during Christmas. After seeing your product, I took the chance and ordered it sent to her. She called me the day they arrived, weeping happy tears, and telling me that through your gift I had given her back good holiday memories. So thank you for this excellent product. She assured me they were as near her family's as possible. December 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just like the old days I bought these sicilian fig biscuits (cucidati) for my husband who remembered eating "hootchie cootchie" cookies made by his Italian aunts. He thought these cookies were great and very similar to the ones he enjoyed as a child. December 9, 2014
