Some Ligurian towns proudly claim paternity, but the fame of the "gobeletti", or "cubeletti", crosses regional borders.
These shortbread pastries filled with fruit jam often peep out from the windows of pastry shops and bakeries, and every master pastry chef or baker has his own favourite variation. Cogoleto, Finale Ligure and Rapallo include gobeletti among their typical specialities, and it is precisely in Rapallo that they are called "cubeletti", also receiving the municipal denomination of origin.
The gobeletti or cubeletti (but also cobeletti, gubeletti) have a characteristic shape: small discs, or caps (cubeletti in dialect) with the concave upper part inside which the jam is inserted. The shape is obtained with special cone-shaped moulds, and the jam is traditionally made of quince.
