As well as being delicious on their own, amaretti can also be used in various recipes. Before revealing some recipes that are ideal with amaretti, we suggest tasting them together with a glass of Marsala Superiore DOC. The noble character of this velvety, aromatic dessert wine makes it perfect for pairing with fruit and desserts such as soft amaretti. Combining one with the other, you’ll be able to fully appreciate both the richness and warm taste of the Marsala and the soft and fragrant heart hidden beneath the golden crust of every single amaretti.
If, on the other hand, you’re ready to tie on your apron and get busy in the kitchen, try using amaretti as an ingredient in a delicious pie or a traditional tiramisu.
Pies are a family dessert that remind us of Sundays spent in the company of our grandparents: one of those cakes that fills our hearts and delights the palate. The pie with ricotta, soft amaretti and Organic Fruit Spread Orange, ideal for serving at breakfast or snack time, is a mouth-watering preparation in which the various ingredients perfectly combine to create a wonderful combination.
After baking the shortcrust pastry base of your pie for about ten minutes, work on the filling: combine 200 grams of sieved ricotta with 80 grams of powdered sugar and a few soft crumbled amaretti cookies. Fill the shortcrust pastry with a layer of Organic Fruit Spread Orange and then pour the ricotta and amaretti cream over it, crumbling some amaretti on the surface as well. Bake in the oven at 375°F for about 20-30 minutes, until golden brown.
What if we told you that tiramisu can be made with soft amaretti instead of savoiardi (or ladyfingers)? In fact, the delicacy of amaretti is ideal for making this irresistible traditional dessert which, moreover, gets a breath of fresh air with the change of ingredients. The fragrance and texture of the amaretti will make your tiramisu special and win the hearts and palates of all the guests at your table.
