Befanini are delicious shortbread biscuits that are usually prepared on the occasion of the Befana. The pastry is enriched with orange peel and rum, it is then cut into the shape of the befana's stocking, the biscuits are then covered with colored sugar sprinkles and baked. In the past, the stocking for the little ones was represented by sweets like these, prepared at home, other than sweets and candies;) I must say that I have never been very attached to this holiday, after the holidays I prefer to avoid other sweets and with a sock full of chocolates it would be too difficult to keep good intentions, but a biscuit instead never refuses, which is why I always prepare a pan of befanini to celebrate the Epiphany.
