According to the Italian legend, Amaretti biscuits were first created three centuries ago-- a young couple's gift to the Cardinal of Milan. They delicately blended and baked a mixture of sugar, egg whites, and apricot kernels. Each round biscuit is individually decorated with pure white sugar, and enclosed in vibrant wrappings.
These Amaretti del Chiostro cookies offer subtle almond flavor, and a delightfully crunchy texture. Enjoy them on their own, dip them in milk, or crumble them over your favorite ice cream. The little window serves as lovely way to keep an eye on your sweet treats-- someone may try to snatch a couple!
A new way for you to curb your sweet tooth, these little biscuits have come all the way from Italy! They were created for a man of prestige and dignity; I thought that they would be perfect for you.
Lots of love, Clara
