These traditional Genovese butter cookies are served all over Italy, but the origin of this cookie is in the Ligurian and Piedmont regions. Ring-shaped or Daisy-shaped, Canestrelli has been a tradition for centuries. Panarello has been making Canestrelli for over 100 years and still use this traditional recipe. These classic tea cookies are made with wheat flour, butter, sugar, milk, eggs and a touch of lemon. Traditionally served at Easter, but you can enjoy them anytime with hot tea or coffee or even with sweet wine.

Panarello began in Genoa, Italy in the 19th Century when Francesco Panarello was hired as the chief confectioner in a bakery in Via Porta d'Archi. The popularity of his rich, tasty desserts led to the bakery becoming more a confectioner. In 1885, at just 17, Francesco took over the bakery and unwittingly began a "sweet" story lasting more than a century. Today, they have shops in Milan, Genoa, Chiavari and Rapallo. They are the confection leaders in the northwest of Italy, in particular Liguria, Piedmont and Lombardy. Their Lagaccio biscuits are the unparalleled leader in Liguria.
