Amaretti are the typical almond paste-based pastries, prepared with sugar, egg white, sweet almonds and almonds. Amaretti biscuits are delicious traditional Italian sweets made with almonds, sugar and egg whites. Their sweet and slightly bitter taste make them perfect to accompany a coffee or tea. The recipe calls for the use of almond flour, sugar, egg whites and a pinch of salt. The dough is then formed into small balls which are flattened lightly before being cooked in the oven. The result is a biscuit that is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, with a delicious almond flavour.
