Zaleti is one of the most typical treats and one of the best dessert recipes.

In the past, they were prepared during the Easter period, but nowadays they are widely available in cakes shops, bakeries and supermarkets all throughout the year.

Zaleti are rustic cookies made with corn flour and wheat flour, enriched with raisins and flavored with a twist of lemon peel.

The basic recipe varies from family to family, from patisserie to patisserie, but they all have one basic common denominator: the yellow color of these diamond shaped biscuits.
