For the Cantucci:

  • 2 ounces warm melted butter
  • 0.5 pound all purpose flour
  • 0.5 pound sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 5 tablespoons candied fruit (or nuts, chocolate chips, almonds, peanuts)
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 Envelope Vanillina or 1/2 Tsp Vanilla extract


Mix the 3 eggs with the sugar and a pinch of salt until well blended and smooth.

Add the warm butter and slowly add the sifted flour with the vanillina powder, or the 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and mix until well blended.

Add the 5 table spoons of the candied fruit or nuts, chocolate chips, almonds or peanuts and mix slowly to incorporate all.

Form two loaves, put them on a baking tray with parchment paper and bake on a pre-heated oven at 355F for 30-35 minutes.

When the loaves are golden, take them out of the oven and let them cool.

Slice the cantucci in diagonal shape of about 1/2" thick. Optionally you can sprinkle the cantucci with powdered sugar.
