Cornetto, Cornetti..Recipe Here

Posted in Abruzzo, and Caro Diario.(dear diary..)

Everyone is crazy for cornetto in Italy. When taken with a foamy cappuccino they wake  up your taste buds  and inspire a beautiful day! Visitors to Italy from all over the world  seem to have become almost addicted to them….I get many,many emails every  day asking how to make them.

I want to first tell you that the cornetti (plural for cornetto) that you get in some of the best coffee bars in the center of Rome are made by some of the world’s best pastry chefs who have professional ovens and pro equipment to make them with so without the same equipment you can not   make an authentic, exact  copy of those at home..

However, I am always working on putting together recipes that my readers can easily follow in their own home kitchen and here is another version of a cornetti which I think you will enjoy making and eating with your morning cappuccino or coffee..


2 cups flour sifted

1 cup butter at room temperature

1 tsp vanilla

8 ounces vanilla flavored yogurt

1/2 package powdered yeast

powdered sugar

Apricot jam or marmalade

In the food processor place in flour, butter, yogurt, vanilla, yeast, and a pinch of  salt. Blend ingredients till a firm dough is formed.  Place dough on a floured board. Work dough and form into one long round oval. Divide this into 6 pieces. Roll out each piece of dough so that it is 10 inches in diameter. Then divide each piece into 8 triangles or cut like you are cutting 8 slices of pizza.

Place 1 tsp of apricot marmalade in center of each triangle and roll into a cornetto (italian version of a croissant) pinch ends closed like a ravioli. Place cornetti on a baking sheet that has been covered with baking paper. Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees for 20 minutes, When cooled, dust with powdered sugar.
