Ossa di Morto
Ossi di Morto, literally bones of the dead, are a cookie made especially for November 2nd, All Souls Day (called Day of the Dead in some cultures). They get their name from their alabaster color and brittleness.
Typical Sicilian biscuits prepared on the occasion of the commemoration of the dead. According to tradition, the souls of the deceased on the night of November 2 bring gifts to the little ones.
These biscuits made with simple ingredients such as flour, sugar and cloves in their crunchiness and friability recall the calcined bones of the dead.
