The Glazed Mustaccere are delicious handmade cookies from Puglia made with simple ingredients but with an intense flavor. Their preparation follows the ancient recipes of Salento grandmothers and they are an excellent choice to accompany a cup of tea or coffee in the morning, or as a dessert after a light meal.

The main ingredients are almonds, lemon, orange, cinnamon, and cloves, strictly handmade following the ancient recipes of Salento grandmothers.

These cookies are an economical and easy choice to prepare, perfect for those who want to surprise their guests with a special sweet but don’t have much time. The package contains 225 grams of cookies and they are a great gift idea for lovers of traditional Apulian cuisine.

The Glazed Mustaccere are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, with an intense aroma and a flavor that skillfully balances sweetness and spiciness. Their name comes from the term “mustazzo“, which means must, because originally they were made with cooked must instead of sugar.

This traditional recipe has been passed down from generation to generation and is still one of the most appreciated pastry specialties of Apulian cuisine today. In addition to being delicious, these cookies are also very versatile: they can be served as a snack during a break, as a dessert after a meal, or as an accompaniment to tea or coffee.

Their preparation requires a lot of attention and patience, as each cookie is handcrafted and slowly baked in the oven. The glaze that covers them can be chocolate, vanilla, or lemon, adding an extra touch of sweetness.

One of the secrets to achieving perfect Glazed Mustaccere is the use of high-quality almonds. This ingredient gives the cookies a crispy note and a bold flavor that pairs perfectly with the other aromas used in the recipe.

Furthermore, these cookies are also highly appreciated for their longevity: they can be stored for several days in an airtight container without losing their flavor and fragrance. For this reason, they are often prepared in large quantities for special occasions such as weddings, baptisms, and birthday parties.

Typical Apulian Glazed Mustaccere

In Puglia, Glazed Mustaccere are widespread especially in the Salento area, where they are considered a typical sweet and represent an important expression of local culinary culture. Every family has its own recipe and its own secret for preparing these delicious cookies, which are often passed down from generation to generation.

Despite their ancient origin, the Glazed Mustaccere are still very much appreciated and loved, especially for their versatility. These cookies can be enjoyed on different occasions and at different temperatures: they can be served hot or cold, accompanied by a cup of coffee or milk.

Furthermore, Glazed Mustaccere can be customized according to one’s tastes: the glaze can be flavored with cinnamon, lemon, vanilla, or chocolate, while the aromas can be intensified or softened according to preferences.

Although Glazed Mustaccere are a traditional Apulian sweet (also discover the sweet taralli with Primitivo wine), they can be easily prepared in other regions as well, thanks to the availability of ingredients and the simplicity of their preparation. For those who love traditional cuisine and homemade sweets, Glazed Mustaccere are an excellent choice and represent a true delicacy!

In short, Glazed Mustaccere are a real treasure of Apulian cuisine that will conquer your senses with their goodness and simplicity. Try them and you won’t be able to do without them!
