Savisto Gluten-Free: How to Make Celiac-Friendly Amaretti Biscuits

Crisp on the outside and ever-so chewy on the inside, with a hint of amaretto for that distinctive almond flavouring, these gluten-free amaretti cookies are a wonderful edible treat. Italian's often serve amaretti biscuits as an after-dinner nibble, but they go great with a nice cup of tea, so feel free to break them out any time you pop the kettle on. 

Making a batch of these biccies is straightforward and should take about 25 minutes. Let us know how you get on in the comments!

What you need (yields 15-18 cookies):

290g ground almonds
290g caster sugar
3 egg whites
30ml Amaretto
1/4tsp vanilla extract
2tbsp caster sugar (for rolling)
2tbsp icing sugar (for rolling)

What you need to do:

1. Whisk the egg whites in a bowl. Add the caster sugar and amaretto and stir. Fold in the almonds
and mix until a sticky paste is formed.

2. Spread the two tablespoons of caster sugar and icing sugar on separate plates. Take a generous
scoop of the mixture (about the size of a ping pong ball) and flatten it slightly into the shape of a
cookie. Roll it in the sugars and place on a parchment lined baking tray. Repeat until you’ve used up
all of the mixture.

3. Preheat your oven to 170°C/325°F/Gas 3.

4. Make an indent in the top of each of the cookies and cook for 15 minutes.

5. Leave to cool for a few minutes, before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

6. Tuck in or store in a jar and eat them within 3 days.
