Following my boyfriend’s love of having a little biscuit or piece of cake with his coffee in the morning, I initiated an online search for the perfect biscuit. Soon to find out that there’s far too many options out there!!!
So I changed my strategy… let’s start with what I have around the house first. I know I keep saying this but I can’t go to the supermarket every time I feel like cooking… I really have to use what I have in the cupboards otherwise I will end up with my own private supermarket or with a bunch of out of date stuff around the kitchen. As none of these options is a good one, I prefer to use my imagination and the ingredients I have around.
For all of the above reasons, when I pay a trip to one of the island’s big supermarkets I do tend to stock up in items that have a long life and that I know will come handy on days like this. So I don’t have to run to the corner shop all the time.
But let’s get back to the perfect biscuit story 🙂 Looking around I noticed an almost empty bottle of amaretto and a pack of ground almonds already open. So these became my two main ingredients. Amaretto always reminds me of Italy. So we have amaretto, almonds and Italy. What about Amaretti biscotti with almonds? Perfect 🙂 The recipe I found on food.com called for sliced almonds but I used ground almonds and it came out as good…
