Ricciarelli are almond paste cookies from Sienna, Italy. They are chewy, sweet and full of almond flavor. The ricciarelli recipe we’re intrigued to try comes from the blog Lemons & Anchovies. (Do visit their site to see some lovely photos too.) You can use blanched almond flour or prepared almond paste.
Or try our version, pictured here, a gluten free ricciarelli that will be a welcome addition to any holiday cookie plate.
