Copate is a Tuscan dessert, originating from the city of Siena. The sweets are famous for being one of the most noble and expensive sweet products in Italy. Their recipe was invented in the Middle Ages in a convent, where the local nuns were famous for their art of pastry-making. The name of the dessert is believed to originate from the Arabic "qubbiat", which in translation means almond.

The copate represents round waffer sandwich with a delicious soft filling made of sugar, honey, toasted almonds, egg whites or cocoa (depending on the desired colour of the copate), vanilla sugar and any other preferred spices.
