So easy to make you may wonder why am I buying this in a store? And the fact that they are on the table within twenty minutes makes it a very tempting snack to eat way too much of! Am I satisfied with this soft Sicilian amaretti cookies? Well you can say yes. How do they end up on the blog you might ask? Very very last minute discovered Mandy van Mandyandmore a mistake in her food blogger exchange project! She made an emergency call on Instagram and I decided to make a recipe from the almost forgotten Corien from “CoriensIten”, a nice Frisian blogger. She was accidentally not linked and that is of course not possible! A delicious amaretti cookie recipe macaroons

This looks too good!

In this dish I use almond flour. Almond flour is a gluten-free alternative to wheat flour, made from finely ground almonds. It has a nutty flavor and is often used in baked goods, as a batter for meat and vegetables, and as a thickener in sauces. It is also popular in low-carb and gluten-free cooking and baking.

No sooner said than done, I quickly got to work and conjured these delicacies out of my oven. (Read more below the recipe.)

Instead of lemon I used tangerine zest.

The funny thing about this story is that this recipe was already “swapped” by Corien herself with other fun foodies, namely De Danoi's! And because a recipe had to be made very quickly, I chose this recipe. Fortunately, I had everything in my house to make these fine cookies and I was able to shoot in no time. To then write out the recipe here and prepare it for you.

    1. Hi Karin, no I wouldn't use that, then either go to another store or order online, I buy it either at the natural store or at the Albert Heijn. Gr Francine

    I will try the recipe soon but I was wondering how long the cookies can be kept. I was also wondering if these can be frozen.
