The first official mention of the Cantucci, under the name of "Biscotti alla Genovese", is in a manuscript of 1700 kept at the State Archive of Prato (Tuscany).
The dictionary of the Accademia della Crusca in 1691, speaks of Cantucci as "sliced biscuits, of fine flour, sugar and egg white".
Almonds come in the recipe as a variation, consolidated in the second half of the nineteenth century.
It is precisely at this time that Antonio Mattei, pastry chef of Prato, fixed the recipe that later became the official one.
With this recipe, Cantucci will receive recognition at the universal exhibition in Paris in 1867 and become famous all over the world.
