These amaretti are delicious, almond-flavored, crunchy cookies made in Saronno, Italy. Legend states that Amaretti biscuits were created three centuries ago by two young lovers for the Cardinal of Milan. Made by slowly baking a blend of sugar, apricot kernels, and egg whites, these crunchy round biscuits are decorated with sparkling white sugar and wrapped in colorful paper.
Growing up, we had Italian neighbors and they would bring us delicious goodies when they returned to the states from Italy. My favorite treat was Amaretti del Chiostro di Saronno. I was delighted and overjoyed to see them available for purchase from Torrone Candy! Thank you so much, they were as yummy and fresh as I remembered them being when I was young.
Overall taste sensation was breathtaking and totally enjoyable! Tkyou so much, I’ll need to put another order in Sooooooooon !!
