Panforte, one of the most famous specialties of the Tuscan city of Siena, is a flat, dense, round confection very similar to a soft torrone. It is made by dissolving sugar with honey and a touch of flour, and then mixing in hazelnuts, almonds, chopped candied citron, chopped citrus peel and various spices. The mixture is then baked in a shallow round dish until firm and dry. Fiorito Panforte is the classic Panforte but layered on top with a thin crust of pure marzipan.
The Pasticcerie Sinati Panforte come wrapped in typical Sienese design wrappings and contain an envelope of powder sugar for dusting before serving. After dusting, cut the Panforte in small wedges and serve with coffee, or with a glass of sweet dessert wine.
