Biscotti Regina - Queen's Biscuits with Thermomix

Biscotti Regina Queen's Biscuits with Thermomix are truly fantastic Sicilian biscuits! They are also known as Reginelle cookies.

When I go to Sicily I always have a feast of these simple cookies, perfect for dipping in milk, yet so tasty.

It will be for the saffron that is in the dough, it will be for the sesame that covers them, they have a truly unique flavor that makes them famous all over the world.

In Catania they have icing.

To prepare this recipe I experimented with several and, in the end, I found the one I liked best! I was inspired by Rosanna's recipe from Una Siciliana in cucina, which I really appreciate both for her recipes and for her photos! I made some small changes and adaptations to the Thermomix and I must say that the result is excellent! Thanks Rosanna!

I often use sesame to cover my baked goods, because I really like its flavor, because it is good for you but also because it gives a good look to the dish. You can also find it in my Burger buns.
