Krumiri are typical cookies from the culinary tradition of Piedmont, to be precise from the Casale Monferrato area in the province of Alessandria.

These cookies were invented by pastry chef Domenico Rossi and date back to 1870.


It seems that their shape derives from the characteristic mustache worn by the first King of Italy, Vittorio Emanuele II who died in those very years, while the origin of the name is still very uncertain.
