This is the word my school Latin course lacked most! ;)

I bet the Romans made really good biscotti with honey, dates, raisins, and nuts!

Incredibly, the word lives on as ┬źcrostolo/crostoli┬╗ in Venice, a sweet pastry known as "angel wings" in English.

I'm pleasantly surprised by the early occurrence of hoc. It looks like this course isn't going to suddenly throw the entire hic, haec, hoc table at us.

I've had nightmares about that table.

"crustulum" sounds nasty compared to "cookie." Kind of like British "biscuit." (No offense, friends across the pond.)

No offence taken sir, but we do also say 'cookie' when referring to the round type of biscuit with chocolate chips/raisins in them :)
