Sicilian Date, Fig and Lemon Biscuits Cuchidahti

Dish’s Food Director, Catherine Bell, discovered cuchidahti in Erice, a village perched on the top of a rock in the northwest of Sicily. “It was a miserable day and the village was enveloped in cloud. The café we took shelter in had a pile of these on the counter. They looked like slightly weird hands but were utterly delicious with their soft, melt-in-the-mouth pastry and tangy lemon and dried fruit filling. Substitute the zest and juice with that of an orange for a change of flavour.”
