A touch of luxury amaretti biscuits

    50 min

    For some reason I always believed baking amaretti biscuits was a difficult task. Perhaps because I remember an attempt not so long ago that didn’t quite work out. This recipe is different. It is one which took several adaptations and a whole lot of patience to get right. One which eventually worked out fine and dandy, thank you very much. In fact, it's pretty perfect, I think!
