Artusi's Amaretti
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 Cups powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract or lemon/orange zest optional
  1. Mix the almond meal and confectioner’s sugar together. Stir in the egg whites and almond extract. I did this with my fingers. Add flavoring if desired. The almond extract delivers the extra Humph.
  2. Sprinkle a bit of almond meal onto your work surface. Take a large piece of dough and roll it into a log about an inch in diameter. Cut into 1 inch pieces. Stand the piece upright and using your thumb, make an indentation into the center. This will be the well that holds the chocolate.
  3. Place them on a greased and almond meal floured baking sheet or use parchment paper and bake them for 11 minutes at 325 degrees.
  4. Let cool. Have fun decorating or enjoy them as is.
