Traditional recipes: Calcioni

 

The Calcioni are a typical product of the municipalities of Ancona, in particular Arcevia, Serra San Quirico, Macerata, and Treia where the third Sunday of May, the Calcione Festival is celebrated. On this event, the product can be served as a second course or a dessert thanks to its sweet and slightly spicy taste.

Ingredients: puff pastry, wheat flour, eggs, Pecorino cheese, sugar and olive oil.

Method: after making puff pastry disc (1 cm thick with a diameter of 10 cm), put the dough made of wheat flour, eggs, Pecorino cheese, sugar and olive oil in the middle. Then, close the disc and cut off the top so as to let the dough partially leak out, while cooking. Cook it on a hot oven.
