Cudduredde is a typical pastry in Caltagirone even if there are different varieties around Sicily. It is characterized by a crunchy shell and a soft filling made of honey or mulled wine and almonds. Its origins dates back to Arabic invasions that imported a similar pastry in every part of the island. From Trapani to Messina there are different names, shapes and some different ingredients: Cudduredde, Buccellati or simply almonds biscuits. However, each of them are composed by the same origins.
