Amaretti di Saronno cookies are perfect to have with coffee, fine wine and after dinner liqueurs. According to legend, almost three centuries ago, the Cardinal of Milan unexpectedly visited the town of Saronno in Italy. To honor him, two young lovers, Giuseppe and Osolina, quickly baked up a mixture of sugar, apricot kernels, and egg whites, creating crisp, airy cookies with an unusual bittersweet flavor, which they wrapped in pairs to symbolize their love. The Cardinal was delighted and blessed the young couple, who married and lived happily ever after. Since 1718 the Lazzaroni family has preserved this ancient and secret recipe. Unwrap a legend and begin your own happy ending.

I bought these because they're delicious, but also because the thin paper wrappers are good for a magic trick. It didn't work fresh out of the box, but I tried it again last night and presto! Maybe the wrappers need to dry a bit first? Anyway, thanks for helping me delight my kids with these.
