Colaz is a donut-shaped baked cookie made of wheat flour, butter, salt, leavening agent, and sugar. They are flavored with vanillin, cinnamon and cloves. A type of Confirmation biscuit, they are typical in Friuli and especially Carnia. Like a brasadé in Oltrepo Pavese during the nineteenth century, they are prepared for the sacrament of confirmation, tied with a ribbon, and used to decorate the confirmand's clothes. The biscuit surface is painted with egg yolk and decorated with colored confectionery. Pink or light blue ribbon is used. [1] It is listed in the Ark of Taste.
