For Palm Sunday it’s a tradition in the Italian Riviera baking sweet donuts, called “canestrelli”, covered with colored sprinkles. People used to bring them to Church for having them blessed jointly with a branch of olive Tree.
They are donuts made of a very light leavened dough with very few fats and sugar as proper for the sacrifice days before Easter. You knead them very quickly, they nap most of the time whilst raising, you bake them in few minutes and then you can have fun decorating them with a lot of sprinkles.
This is another yummy recipe perfect for cooking with kids and having fun with them during these long quarantine days.
