Don’t you just love it when you find that all-purpose cookie – the one you can serve any time of the year, and for any occasion? Whether it’s for a ladies tea, a Christmas cookie exchange, a hostess gift, or if you are in need of a cookie recipe that is gluten free, dairy free, and egg free – these Italian Amaretto Almond Cookies are it my friends!
This was one of those recipes that was passed down from a friend to a friend to a friend. The original recipe called for more sugar, but these cookies are still super yummy with a little less.
These cookies are Martha Stewart worthy! Trust me, I know it can be a struggle to bake gluten and vegan. My first attempt at baking these cookies was an epic fail, but then I realized what I did. Second batch was perfection.
Flourless almond cookies are popular in Spain and Italy. They are not sweet, they have more of a biscotti or cantucci taste and texture. AND… they are friendly to the waistline!
The first bite, you will taste the almond and amaretto. Then it’s…. wait for it… wait for it… ahhhhh the brightness of the lemon.
They are the perfect dessert for a traditional Italian Feast of the Seven Fishes.
