Looking for a good workable recipe for Italian SAVIATTA cookies-Very popular in almost all the bakeries around 86th St. in Brooklyn. They are about 5-6inches long, WHITE to an ever-so-slightly tan, with a very smooth, almost shiny, but often cracked(crackled?) top surface, about 2inches wide. Top is domed to slightly'puffed', while the bottom is flat- a generally oblong shape. They are light and delicate to the taste with a hint of almond(?) and/or vanilla. They are a soft, but chewy consistency.
While I believe them to be mostly of eggwhite, I have come across a couple of recipes using potato flour.Nothing has come remotely close-and I am long and far away from any bakery that would have them. The very last one that I am hoarding, looks as though this batch has a smoothed LAYER of some variation of a merange on the whole top.-but the ones I remember, looked all as one piece. I have one left if a picture is needed! ANYONE know these??

Is there an alternate to the name?

I've checked all my Italian cookbooks and Italian cooking sites and this recipe is not listed anywhere. It could be an Americanization of an Italian name.

Hi Eros - I know exactly what cookie you're talking about. My grandmother used to come to our house every weekend with a bag full (along with the tri-color cookies)from a bakery in Canarsie. I live in PA now and haven't been able to find anything like them locally. I've searched for Saviatta recipies, even using various other spellings, but haven't had any luck. Suprisingly, of the few people I've run across in newsgroups and other websites asking for recipies, even fewer seem to know of this particular cookie. My grandmother always called them Saviatta, but I wonder if they go under another name.

Good luck with your search.

Jim

EROS:

Why not contact a bakery in Brooklyn and ask them about the biscuit?

Or have you tried that - ?

SAVIATTA OR SAVIARDI NON E` IL NOME GIUSTO IO CREDO CHE SIA:
( SAVOIARDI) UNA REGIONE DI FRANCIA CHE FACEVA PARTE A
L'ITALIA CHE SI CHIAMAVA; SAVOIA, DA DOVE VIENE IL NOME
< SAVOIARDI> UN ITALIANO DA MOTREAL CANADA

if anyonre wants a translation of clever-dick's little post, I can oblige....

He thinks you have the name wrong, and that it originates from the Savoie Region of France, that once was a principality or domain of Italy... The biscuit he thinks you should be looking for is a Savoiardo.... But I think you already eliminated that in your original post....?

And he's an Italian living in Montreal... and I know it's male, because he's speaking in the masculine, not the feminine.

Molte grazie, anonimo... Sei un grande aiuto...

(I just tole him he wuz a real big help.... <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> )

Alexandra,
Thank you for the assistance.

In my continued research I read that this cookie is similar to Margherite cookies. Others have described them as being similar to the Stella D'Oro breakfast treats.
