Where to Buy: CiCi’s Italian Butterhorns on Foodzie
CiCi’s Italian Butterhorns are hand rolled Italian cookies made from a light buttery dough and filled with cinnamon, sugar and walnuts. The rolled technique keeps the cookie center soft and caramelized during baking while the outer shell turns to a flaky golden brown. It’s impossible to eat just one!
What I Think:
These are AWESOME! They look a bit like the cresent rolls you might eat on Thanksgiving, but these are coated with cinnamon and sugar. But these certainly do not taste like dinner rolls from a can!
The shell of the cookie is delicately crisp and just under the cinnamon-and-sugared exterior, you can see the flaky layers. These layers have a light buttery taste.
The inside is tender and melts in my mouth! The filling is sweet and nutty, with a gentle spicy note from the cinnamon. I found these to be particularly delicious with a cup of chai – with or without milk. I enjoyed my package with this chai from Chai-Wallah’s. Scrumptious!
My Final Thoughts:
I have enjoyed every item I’ve received in my tasting boxes up to this point, but I just may have to proclaim this one as my favorite (for now, anyway!) I am definitely going to be ordering more of these. They are just too amazingly good to ignore!
