Piparelli Messina are typical biscuits of the confectionery tradition of Messina but known and appreciated throughout Sicily. These are spicy and fragrant biscuits made with crunchy almonds, honey and aromas. The name of these biscuits is believed to derive either from the use of pepper in the recipe or from the fact that, in ancient times, they were cooked on wood stoves, which puffed like "pipes", at a temperature of 50 ° C even for two consecutive days.
