      I love Amaretti cookies! My biggest complaint about most recipes is that they are missing that almond flavoring I crave. This recipe fills that bill to a tee! I wound up having to freeze them to keep me from eatting every last one of them. These little gems are mindboggling delicious! Next time I may add some pine nuts to garnish them. Yum! Made for Spring 2012 PAC.

      These were so easy to make and came out perfect! I found that mixing the almond paste and sugar worked better using my hand than the mixer to work out the clumps and get it to a fine consistency. Other than that they cooked up perfectly...crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Delicious! I only got 2 dozen out of the recipe though.
