And they are yummy. I like to break them into pieces and scoop up blobs of chocolate ice cream with them:


Mmm, the water is running into my mouth reading this. It is time for me to set off to the supermarket and buy some supplies.
I do love another kind ot italian cookies. They're round and small, taste like almonds and are very crispy. They melt on your tongue. Can't remember their name right now. I don't mean cantuccini.
I'd better run off to the kitchen and cook my diner before I forget myself and go wild with those cookies Wink

Amaretti?

Gosh, I usually make those for Christmas, but I didn't bake this past year.

Yes, amaretti, that's their name. Very Happy
You really make them yourself? I must try them once, I love to bake.

I do indeed-they're very easy to make. I was just about to pack up my cookbooks for my move next week when I saw your post, but dug out my recipe first. Like I said, very easy.

Amaretti (Almond Macaroons)


1/2 pound blanched almonds

4 drops bitter almond oil (I buy mine at the pastry supplies section of my craft store, but some supermarkets carry it, too.)

3/4 cup granulated sugar (this is just table sugar for those outside the US)

2 egg whites

1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar (powdered sugar)

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

Finely grind blanched almonds, in batches, using a hand grinder, blender or food processor. Be careful they don't turn into a paste.

combine almonds with almond oil, sugar and lightly beaten egg whites. Knead mixture into a firm dough.

With moistened hands, form dough into 1-inch diameter balls (about 45 balls). Place balls at least 1 inch apart on a baking sheet covered with baking parchment, using a second baking sheet if needed. Place baking sheet on bottom rack of oven and bake for about 55 to 60 minutes.

Transfer baked cookies to a wire rack. Using a fine sieve, dust cookies with confectioners' sugar while warm.

Yummy, yummy. They get crispy as they cool. Store in an airtight container. My grandmother used to put two cookies together with jam sometimes.

Denise

Thank you so much for your recipe Denise Very Happy . And I apologize for answering so late. I suddenly decided to spend my last week off with friends and relatives, so I haven't been in the library for more than a week.
I hope the removal to your new home was a succes. i know what a lot of work that can be.
