The perfect time to taste the Urigliettas!

Sas Urigliettas (also called orilletas, origlietas, orulletas, urigliettas or montecadas) are a traditional Sardinian sweet, which is especially served during the Carnival celebrations. This pretty and delicious dessert is made from durum wheat semolina and fresh eggs. It consists of a sheet of dough cut into strips then twisted to form floral motifs and then fried in hot local honey. Yummmm …. Heaven!
