Typical pastry from Abruzzo made with a production process that has not changed over the centuries, which involves the use of ferro for cooking, an essential double-slabbed and slightly hollow tool, which gives the Neole their peculiar rhombus-shaped look. Every family used to have a ferro and, as a proof of its importance, it was part of the bride’s inventory. In many cases, the central part of this tool had the family’s coat of arms, therefore when the bride was giving her Neole, the coat of arms of her own ferro represented a proper signature. Nowadays, there are plenty of versions of this speciality, even though they must traditionally be crispy, thin and with anise seeds, just the way Rustichella d’Abruzzo proposes it. According to tradition, cooking time must equal the duration of the Ave Maria on one side and the Lord’s Prayer on the other. You can try it with a bit of powdered sugar and cinnamon or stuffed with Rustichella “Sclucchiata di uva Montepulciano d’Abruzzo”. Its refined packaging can be created only by those who have a great passion for tradition.
