Amaretto di Sassello

This post is also available in: Italiano (Italian)

“Amaretto” is a small pastry made with almond paste and allegedly invented by the Arabs, then exported throughout the world. In Italy, there are two main recipes, from Saronno (drier), and from Sassello (softer). The latter takes its name from the town in the Ligurian hinterland, where the recipe has been known and passed on since the 1800s.
It comes in a round shape with a bitter-sweet taste.
The original recipe uses chopped almonds, egg white and sugar. The result is then poured on a baking sheet and cooked at 338 F° for 30 minutes. Be warned though: in order to obtain the perfect Amaretto, mixing the ingredients, shaping the pastry and then baking it is a true art.
