This is a delightfully simple and delicious almond tart with the filling sandwiched inside. Perfect for breakfast or for tea, its dry dense texture is designed to accompany drinks of some sort.

This is another sweet, with its sugar and almonds, that came from the Arabs. Indeed Italian desserts divide into those that are plain by modem standards, and ones that betray an Eastern influence and are very sugary.
