Amaretti by the Sea

A little bit of Italian, blended with the seaside. Amaretti is a story of sweet biscuits, mobiles made from driftwood we collected from the beach, the delightful aroma of almonds and Amaretto baking, and relaxing cloudy days curled up with hot tea, biscuits and a good book. Music credits to the late Signore Renato Carosone for his bubbly, light song Tu Vuò Fà L'Americano.

I realise this style of piping is not necessary to make amaretti but for the life of me, I could not find the round piping bag attachment for my piping set, so I improvised with a crescent shape, and had a lot of fun making squiggles!

Recipe for gluten free amaretti biscuits can be found here.

The end result was delicious but if you think that we merely nibbled crunchy amaretti with hot tea from this batch, you would be wrong, because we used them in another recipe and as yet, nobody has correctly guessed what that recipe was... Any ideas dear friends?
