CHIACCHIERE TIME

I love chiacchiere, the thin biscuits made during the Carnival season, especially if they are drizzled with chocolate, like the ones atop this selection



or homemade like these, which were sent in to the School by a student's mum today:



Chiacchierare is the verb "to gossip" and the biscuits are so named either because their shape resembles that of old women's tongues or, more likely, because of the "psst" sound they make when the pastry is dropped into the hot oil.
