Dolce Si Bakery and Cafe Savory Pastry

Sicilians call them Cipolline, but you can call them Yummy

Cipolline means “small onions”,  but the pastry is like puff pastry dough, filled with cooked ham, mild cheese, a bit of tomato, and, of course, sautéed onions.  A sweet delight that can’t be missed is the lovely and delicate Sicilian pastry.  Once called the “Diplomat” because a similar cake was sent as a gift from a diplomat of the Duchy of Parma in 1454.

Made in the shape of square cake and cut into smaller squares to be served as a kind of pastry portion, is always a delight to taste a piece because it combines the delicacy and softness of the sponge cake with the crunchiness of the puff pastry.
