SIMPLE VANILLA AMARETTI COOKIE RECIPE

by | 2018 | Almond, Cane Sugar, Chocolate, Egg, Food, Sea Salt, The Lills, Vanilla Extract

Amaretti cookies are one of our favorite treats. We used to get them from a bakery in Pagosa Springs, Colorado and now we make our very own version. The base of our cookie is still almond flour, but instead of using almond extract, we like to use vanilla bean or vanilla extract. Sometimes, we even adorn them with chocolate chips or walnuts. They are meant to be pale on top, golden on the bottom, chewy on the inside and have a delicate crunch on the outside. When done correctly, they are delicious! Try the recipe below!

Vanilla Amaretti Cookie Recipe:

  • Whisk the sea salt, cane sugar, almond extract and egg together in a bowl
  • Add almond flour, 1/4 a cup at a time, until everything is mixed evenly
  • Roll into a ball, cover the bowl and place in the fridge (1+ hour to overnight – the colder/firmer, the better)
  • Preheat oven to 320 degrees
  • Take the dough out of the fridge and roll out 1 – 1.5 teaspoon balls
  • Roll each ball in cane sugar and/or powdered sugar
  • Place each ball on a baking sheet, on a cookie pan (.5-1 inch apart)
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges (they will firm up when they cool)
  • Cool for 5 minutes and serve warm or room temperature
