Amaretti

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

These are a wonderful, classic Italian crunchy cookie, that is great for anyone who is gluten- or wheat-free! As these sit, they get crunchy throughout. Delicious with any fruit dessert, paired with an ice cream sundae, or on their own with a strong espresso!
