Description: This divine cookbook includes 170 recipes for favorite Italian desserts -- simple sweets served both at home and in trattorias and cafes throughout Italy. 

More than two dozen cookie recipes include almond-laced Biscotti di Prato, the classic sesame cookie Biscotti Regina, and lemony butter rings. Flaky tarts are filled with everything from fruit jams and Arborio rice to sweet berries and lemon and chocolate. Refreshing, delicate Italian ices are intensely flavored with mint, sparkling white wine and peaches, and raspberries. 

To round out this scrumptious collection, Michele Scicolone has included recipes for simple fruit and cheese desserts, dessert sauces, explanations of Italian dessert wines and after dinner digestivi -- and, of course, how to brew a perfect cup of Italian coffee. This irresistible cookbook is sure to delight everyone, even those with the most discerning sweet tooth.
