‘Corassons’ are typical of Ascó and the Ribera d’Ebre though we do not know exactly their origin or whether the lard ones were previous to the vegetable oil ones. ‘Corassons’ are made with molds of different shapes: star, moon, flower, or heart. However, the heart shape is the one that became popular more quickly.
In some villages, there is a recipe for ‘corassons’ that uses aniseeds, an ingredient that gives a heritage value to much of our pastry. We can find this ingredient in many recipes, which makes us think about the inheritance from Islamic cuisine.
