Cialdoni dei Medici (Traditional Tuscan pastry shells)

I usually don’t do recipes, but when it’s passed along to you by Lorenzo “il Magnifico” de’ Medici – who loved these things – it’s hard not to share.

100 gr of flour
120 grams of sugar
2 eggs
1 pinch of salt

Mix flour, eggs, sugar, salt until you get a firm and soft paste. Make small masses of dough and cook in waffle plates. While still hot, roll them up and serve with strawberries or gelato – or both! Buon appetito!
