Krumiri are well known in northern Piemonte. The cookie and its shape were meant to represent King Vittorio Emanuelle II’s mustache. 

I like to enjoy them with tea.


Preheat oven to 300F, then line three half sheet trays by lightly spraying with nonstick spray and covering with parchment paper.


Combine the corn flour, All-Purpose flour, and salt then set aside.


Cream the softened butter and sugar together, then add the eggs one at a time. Be sure to scrape down the sides of your bowl to ensure it is completely emulsified. Then add the dry ingredients and mix until combined.


Fit a pastry bag with a star tip (I use ATECO size 843). Pipe the cookie dough onto the sheet trays in either straight lines or half-moons. If you choose, lightly sprinkle with sugar. Freeze for five minutes then bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.
