Wink  ZALETTINI AL DIAMONTES DI VENETO ...
 
Zalettini translate to: " little yellow ones", denoting a corn flour and wheat flour short bread formed into diamond shapes ... from the province of Veneto, Italia. Their crunchy texture and lovely light yellow corn flour color, have made them a specialty of the region for centuries. My Grandmom had made these for us as children.
 
               Smile  Zalettini ...

1 1/2 CUPS CORN FLOUR
