Little Almond Cookies – Amarettini


Have you ever had a coffee in a cafeteria in Italy? In Italian a cafeteria is called bar which has nothing to do with alcoholics and music though at least beer, wine and drinks is something you can have there as well. Italians take their breakfast in a bar: a cappuccino or espresso together with a brioche or cornetto. And some chats before work!

When you order a coffee normally they bring a small glass of fresh water and the little espresso. Near to the tiny cup there will be a spoon and a little treat. Some chocolate or a cookie. And oftentimes it will be an Amaretto cookie.

This little almond cookie is very tasty and a great ‘partner’ to the hot lightly bitter coffee (if you drink it the way it comes, more sweet if you put one of the many sweeteners they bring aside).

The original recipe is made with sugar, I changed it into Erythritol granulated sugar and took the original recipe. They are easy peasy to do and you can store them for days in the fridge (in summer) or an air-tide box.

This way you have always a little treat to give when friends are coming around ‘just for a 5 minute coffee’.

Recipe Notes

Don't worry if the cookies coming out of the oven are still soft. They will harden when they cool out. It's similar to the meringues.

You can store them in an air-tide box.
