Pizzelles aren’t the only Italian cookie we make during the holidays. Last year we added amaretti to our cookie list and they were a huge hit! The nice thing about these cookies is no mixer is required. You just need a food processor. They also only have 3 ingredients making them a breeze to throw together. You will need to pull out your decorating or french macaron making supplies to pipe them onto the cookie sheets though.
We sprinkle our amaretti with red and green sugar before baking to give them a festive look. The end result is a delicious, almond-flavored cookie that is a huge fan favorite!
Amaretti are definitely a part of our #12CookiesofChristmas! Will they be part of yours?
