Grandma’s sweets are by definition the best and most genuine ones and Salento pastries are no exception. 
We will venture, therefore, to make the renowned and famous pasticciotto leccese, made of shortcrust pastry and custard, the mustazzoli which are typical holiday cookies made of cocoa or lemon, as well as cartellate, fried sweets made of dried fruit and honey typically eaten at Christmas.

These sweets are sought after even outside Salento, as their goodness has now crossed regional borders, conquering even the most demanding palates.
