Another variation on the combination of cake and cookie, this time from the Piedmont. The recipe is from Claudia Verro, one of Italy’s most outstanding chefs, who with her husband, Tonino, runs the charming inn La Contea, near Alba. Claudia’s version is a light, delicate one, more like a cake than a cookie and thus different from the typical firm versions of this sweet.
