Italian term or phrase: biscottate
Si tratta di una traduzione per un prodotto in commercio, quindi molto importante:
..Le friselle sono tipiche della tradizione gastronomica meridionale, preparate con farina, lievito acqua e sale e poi *biscottate* in forno...

Ho trovato diverse traduzione nel dizionario ma non saprei qual'è è più corretta: twice-baked, toasted (non credo), rusks (più tradotto come fette biscottate.

Chi conosce le Friselle magari mi sa aiutare meglio.

Grazie a tutti.

I wouldn't translate the name *friselle* at all - after all, pizza, ciabatta and foccaccia are all commonly used in English now, as well as being available at most supermarkets, maybe it's the turn of friselle (ne avrei un po' di nostalgia).
