Topino d'Ognissanti biscuit

This biscuit - a "ciambella" based recipe - reminds us of the mice plague at the new cemetery of Comacchio, which had been organized at Valle Raibosola, after coming to an agreement with the French during the Napoleonic era.

After a long period spent praying the Virgin, the mice finally disappeared. According to tradition, the families of Comacchio prepared those mouse-shaped sweets to exorcize the fear.
