Panforte is a traditional Italian delicacy for Christmas.
Panforte is a gingerbread or cake with nuts, berries and dried fruits. It is often prepared just for Christmas, and for all Italians Panforte is a symbol of the holiday.
Panforte is like kozinaki. There are two versions of this cake: panforte Nero - with dark chocolate and bitter taste, and panforte Margherita - light cake with a delicate flavor.
Panforte can be found in any pasticheria.
