The Sicilian buccellato is an ancient baked dessert consumed during the Christmas period throughout Sicily. Its name derives from the Latin civilization, where the "buccellatum" was a type of bread in the shape of a donut engraved along the edges that vaguely recalled the current Sicilian buccellato. In some areas "buccellato" is also called c"udduredda". Buccellato is, in fact, a Sicilian shortcrust pastry donut decorated with candied fruit and stuffed with a very rich filling of dried figs, dried figs, almonds, orange peel and other ingredients depending on the area in which it is prepared. From the tradition of Buccellato, biscuits were born, today very popular in Sicily, the Buccellatini .
