Simply put, this Amaretti Cookies Recipe will surely become a holiday staple in your home. Not only are they quick and easy to make, but they are so very delicious. Make a double recipe of these almond cookies and tuck some into gift bags to give this holiday.
Like you, we have a long list of cookies that will be baked each November and December. Spicy, Chewy Molasses Cookies and Crispy Ginger Cookies, as well as my Grandma’s Chocolate Cookies, are on the ‘must bake’ list and have been for as long as I can remember.
But this year, I am adding a new one. That I can have two dozen of these easy soft Amaretti Cookies baked, start to finish, in under an hour is a big plus. And, not for nothing, these delightful Italian cookies will please the marzipan lovers in your world. An added bonus is that you can make up a big batch of dough and freeze it until needed.
But on top of that, these chewy almond cookies are the perfect combination of chewy on the inside and a slight crunch on the outside. That combination is the perfect recipe and a sure winner in my well-honed cookie analysis.
