Why do we make emphasis on the fact that these cookies come from Italy?

Sure you wonder what’s the special thing in this product? Timing, process and yes, ingredients. Every single product needs its own process, ingredients and time to be unique and different for the rest. Amaretti cookies for example, are made from either ground almonds or almond paste, along with sugar and egg whites and can be flavored with chocolate or liqueurs. Oftentimes, two baked cookies are sandwiched together with ganache, buttercream or jam….just perfect!
