Amaretti cookies save the day

BellaBiscotti.jpgI was given an assortment of Italian cookies from Bella Biscotti, and I just finished eating them. (Hey, it's a rainy, dreary Sunday morning. The best time to eat cookies.) They were good, but we have fine Italian bakeries in Baltimore, so I'm not thinking most of you will be driving up to Hanover for them or ordering them over the internet.

Except for the amaretti. These were spectacular: chewy on the inside, crisp outside and deliciously almond flavored. Well worth whatever you have to do to get them.

Of course, I didn't try the chocolate butterscotch biscotti or the chocolate chip biscotti or the cranberry or the coconut and pineapple...

My blood sugar level went up just looking at them.

I see they're also available in Westminster. I may have to get out there soon before the days are 3 hours long and the blizzard winds are upon us!

Vaccarros' amaretti cookies rock my world.
