Tortas de aceite, flaky cookies with a hint of anise, are one of the most popular pastries from Spain. Our tortas are one of the best versions of this famous cookie: they’re perfectly thin, crispy cookies flavored with sugar, sesame and anise!
Tortas de Aceite, or olive oil cookies, originated in Sevilla over 100 years ago. Using premium extra virgin olive oil, the pastries are formed by hand with a mix of flour, anise seeds and a bit of sugar. The resulting wafer is a lightly sweet pastry with a touch of anise and one bite is never enough.
Whether you’re longing for the sweet treat you enjoyed in Spain or hope to try this regional specialty for the first time, our tortas are a delight. We enjoy a flaky torta with a piping hot cup of coffee in the morning, or as an afternoon bite. No matter when you choose to indulge, you’ll be instantly rewarded with these thin cookies that melt in your mouth with each bite!
