Chewy Amaretti (Kate Gibbs recipe)

No French Fridays with Dorie this week, I'm afraid - life has been going at a frantic pace, and it has been as hot as Hades here, both of which have combined to ensure that a hot, leisurely soup were not on my menu.  I do have the lentils, so perhaps I'll make it next week. 

Instead, I bring you some beautiful chewy amaretti, from a recipe by Kate Gibbs (Margaret Fulton's granddaughter).  The recipe is online here

These little biscuits were perfectly delicious, and being bite-sized, it was easy to have more than one.  If you like almonds, these biscuits are made for you.  Even better, they are very simple to make.

Have a great weekend.

These look amazing...a perfect holiday cookie! I can't wait till our temps aren't soup worthy :)

sound like my sort of bikkie - though I sympathise with you not doing the cooking in the heat we have had recently - though the cold today was a surprise - it felt like summer would just go on and on

These little amaretti cookies look really good, and they are so elegantly pretty, I better put them on my cookie list (and there is no chocolate in them! :-) so that means I can eat them!).

Oh WOW! So glad you loved the biscuits. I make these all the time, and love that they're gluten free. xx Kate
