Siena is known for a delectable variety of cakes and cookies with recipes dating to medieval times. Some Sienese sweets are cavallucci (sweet spice biscuits), panforte (a traditional Christmas delicacy, literally "strong bread," with honey, hazelnuts, almonds, and spices), ricciarelli (almond-paste cookies), and castagnaccio (a baked Tuscan flat cake made in fall and winter from a batter of chestnut flour topped with pine nuts and rosemary).
