Baci di dama biscuits originated in the Italian city of Turin. They are small, round biscuits, sandwiched together with a filling and slightly resemble lips - which is why the name translates as lady's kisses! There are lots of varieties but this recipe makes chocolate biscuits with a white chocolate filling. Simply delicious!
These biscuits have a lot of butter and natural oils from the nuts. It's important to touch the dough as little as possible, plus keep it very cold before baking to get the correct shape.
If the white chocolate goes hard while you are sandwiching the biscuits together, microwave for 15 seconds and it will melt again.
