This is a unique, biscuit-like Italian bread flavored with sweet Marsala and studded with dried fruits. Beautiful when served with Mascarpone cheese blended with a bit of confectioner's sugar and a touch of vanilla extract - heaven with coffee! It's unusual, and one of my favorites from the Silver Palate authors.
