Prepare the vin santo: gluten-free cantucci are here

gluten-free biscuits

Let's find out how to prepare gluten-free cantucci so that they have nothing to envy to the originals in terms of flavor and consistency.

Cantucci, also known as Prato biscuits, are typical Tuscan biscuits usually served as a dessert together with vin santo. The idea of ​​preparing gluten-free cantucci stems from the desire to allow even those who suffer from celiac disease or intolerance to savor this typical product.

Thanks to the combination of rice and almond flour, there won't be much difference between this recipe and the original. Even the procedure is the same: in fact, think that this is one of the few recipes where the term biscuits, i.e. cooked twice , is really applied to the letter. In fact, the dough is first cooked in the shape of a loaf and then toasted after having given it its characteristic shape. But let's see all the steps in detail.
