How to make Italian twisted cookies (vegan torcetti with kinako). Torcetti is a traditional Italian cookie (biscuit) with several variations, but I added a Japanese twist ;). It is typically made with butter, but I substituted it with oil. You can also use vegan butter. I incorporated kinako (roasted soybean flour commonly used in Japanese cuisine), which gives it a rich, nutty flavor. You should be able to find kinako in most asian grocery stores. Hope you enjoy it!
