Italians love almonds. This cake has almond paste, too. And amaretti cookies, which have almond in them, too. AND I’ve added some almond extract to the recipe. It’s a very fragrant and moist cake. The lemon glaze gives it a fun lift. 3 cups amaretti cookies. 13 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided (plus a little more to butter pan)
Bake the amaretti cookies until the tops are cracked and the cookies are golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a couple of minutes, then transfer to a wire rack so they can cool completely. The cookies will keep for up to 3 days in an airtight container.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Stack two matching, heavyweight, light to medium colored cookie sheets one inside the other (stacking two cookie sheets together keeps the bottoms of the cookies from getting too brown). Line with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Inspired by the threesome’s melodic tones, I endeavored to make amaretti cookies to achieve the whole Italian experience. I was thrilled to find almond flour at Trader Joe’s and decided it was destino. 2 ½ cups of almond flour (or 3 cups almonds), finely ground; 1 ¼ cup of baker's sugar (superfine sugar)
Amaretti cookies The romantic version of how ‘Amaretti’ originated, involved two lovers in Saronno who owned a baker’s shop’. In 1719 a cardinal from Milan came to visit the local church and the bakers wanted to make a special biscuit to commemorate the occasion, but had only ground apricot kernels, sugar and egg whites available.
Soft Amaretti Cookies. Soft Amaretti Cookies. Amaretti (plural) are almond flavored Italian macaroons that can have a texture ranging from soft and chewy to crispy. Amaretti can be found throughout Italy with each region claiming to have “the best” version of this cookie.

Chewy Amaretti Cookies ... I have fallen in love with Trader Joe’s Almond horns and have been unable to find a recipe for anything like them -this is a dead ringer! I add a scant 1/4 cup of slivered almonds to the batter and toped with a very thick ganache (less is better on these babies! I never would have thought).
Trader Joe’s Butternut Squash and Creamed Spinach Gratin is a tasty a break from traditional butternut squash dishes. The cons: Wish there was more creamed spinach. Or cheese for that matter. I actually think that Trader Joe’s Scalloped Potatoes with Quattro Formaggio should set the cheesy basis for all other gratin dishes.
Some raw or undercooked foods and dishes pose a risk; milk, sushi, cheese (raw, as well as ones said to be made with pasteurized milk), Caesar salad, shellfish, sunny side-up eggs, and rare meat are a few of them.But even everyday foods aren’t necessarily safe as well, as recent recalls of peanut butter, cantaloupes, honey, cookie dough, and pistachios have proved.
