Cantucci, biscotti, or biscotti di Prato?
Cantucci are probably the best-known Italian biscuits abroad. Outside Italy they are often referred to simply as biscotti, which is a shortening of their alternative name, biscotti di Prato. However, if you went into an Italian shop or bar and asked for a biscotto you’d be presented with an extremely wide range of confection. Biscotto for Italians is the equivalent of biscuit or cookie: and there are many types.
