The Birighitti or pirichittos are balls of irregular shape with the scent of lemon ( add some anise to give them more flavor). Perfect to accompany with a good muscat , are quick and easy implementation .
300 grams of flour
a glass of olive oil
the hood :
400 grams of sugar
Zest of 1 lemon
Slowly add flour and oil to the five beaten eggs into the bowl . Mix slowly until dough is smooth and soft , and add the egg advanced. Flour the hands and make small balls of dough to be placed on the baking sheet at a certain distance between them. Bake at 120 degrees and cook for about 15 minutes until the balls do not reach a nice golden color and are well cooked inside and out.
Let them cool and prepare the hood.
Take a large pan (or a wok ) and put in sugar, lemon zest and a nice glass of water. We turn continuously heat and let the mixture over low heat (otherwise the sugar becomes caramel !) Until a syrup seem colorless and dense. At this point, we are ready to immerse our pirichittos into the pot and leave , stirring constantly, until it is snug against the hood to form a rough and uneven coverage . Let them cool for at least an hour and enjoy them !
If sometimes you can opt for a variant of “artistic” : do not put the cakes in the pan with the sugar but be casting the mixture slowly over the pellets in such a way as to create curved lines or other decorations of great visual impact !
Ps: are sweet , long-life , then you can prepare in large quantities without risking they go bad .
At this point there are only two solutions : go to Sip and savor these and other products or try to make them at home!
