Cookies for breakfast? Something sweet for breakfast? This is always a great surprise: the typical Italian breakfast is with milk, coffee, cappuccino and a brioche, bread and jam or biscuits. If you look on the shelves of the supermarkets you will find a great selection of breakfast biscuits/cookies. In the hotels you will often find the so-called Continental Breakfast, which also includes savory, eggs, cheese and cold cuts but in Italian homes and bars you will find more sweet things for breakfast. Here are our cream biscuits/cookies.
