Cookies made of paper-thin dough with an aromatic almond filling that melts in the mouth are known and popular throughout Dalmatia. Imotski, Makarska and Sinj are proud of this cake, although the Trogir rafioli were awarded the title of the most prestigious one. There are many legends about the origin of this half-moon shaped dessert. The Trogir one says that a young woman named Rafiola, who was imprisoned in Trogir’s Kamerlengo tower, baked these delicious cookies while waiting for her sweetheart to liberate her. Citrus peel and vanilla are added to improve the taste.
