The Ostie Piene Sweet Wafers
Among typical desserts of Monte Sant’Angelo there are the “ostie piene” sweet stuffed wafers: crunchy toasted almonds, caramelized with honey, sugar and cinnamon, enclosed between two white hosts. A simple sweet with spicy taste. Legend says that he was born in the Holy Trinity Monastery of Monte Sant’Angelo, from the Nuns of the Order Of Santa Chiara. It seems that a reli- gious dropped carelessly almonds in honey and she has used to retrieve the consecrated host, prepared for Holy Communion. The result was a real find.
