Tarallini (Italian Mini Bagels) are one of Ivano and Elisa’s favorite snack food: when they go out together, they always come back with a pack of Tarallini with fennel seeds, from the bakery alongside of the office, and they crunch, crunch, crunch 🙂 Last Sunday, Elisa really wanted to mess about in the kitchen together with me, so I thought we could make her worshipped Tarallini. This time, I let her deal with the whole procedure, from kneading to shaping: you have no idea of how bravo she has been! When she cooks with me she looks like a little tiny soldier: she climbs onto the chair ad does exactly what I say! And she doesn’t even mess up too much! Unbelievable!! Anyway, our Tarallini were bombtastic, and I bet that was thanks to her adorable tiny chubby hands, which made the dough special! 😉
Guys, I’m going to get ready: for my birthday, my spouse arranged a weekend in a farm near Benevento with the whole family, 2 days of open-air strolls and simple homemade cooking. XOX and read on Monday :-***

Move the Tarallini onto an oven tray covered with baking paper, and bake at 200°C for about 30 minutes.
Cook for about 30 minutes, of till the Tarallini will be golden. Let cool down before serving.
