Amaretti Cookies – Original since 1718
A tea biscuit, typical of the 1700s when tea was a part of life. Thirteen generations have been making these amazing tea biscuits, in the traditional style. Originally, the cookie was made by two young lovers when the cardinal of Milan came to town. As they didn’t the means to purchase ingredients, they used what they had – apricot kernel, sugar and egg whites. And that is how these sweet, crunchy biscuits are made today, by the same family, 300 years later. The wrapper plays an historic celebratory role, too – wrap it in a funnel, place it on a plate, and let it burn. If you’re outside, light the paper on fire, throw it in the air and watch as it falls. Comes in a recyclable bag with seven biscuits. An experience!
A Bit of History
Made by two young lovers when the cardinal of Milan came to town in 1818, using only 3 ingredients. Still made by the same family 300 years later. Wrap the empty paper in a funnel, and set a lit match to the top for a slow, beautiful fire that often rises into the air just before extinguishing.
