Nut free Panforte

Panforte is a chewy Italian dessert traditionally containing fruits, seeds and nuts. Its origins date back to the crusaders of the 1096 to 1291 first campaign who it is thought discovered some version of it in Turkey enroute to Jerusaleum.

Confectioners in Siena, Italy however, say that panforte is their creation and that only select ingredients were inspired by Turkish offerings such as Turkish Delight which soldiers brought back to the Tuscany region on their return from the Holy Lands.
