Amaretti is the Italian name for macaroons, which means little bitter things. Vicenzovo Amaretti are made from ground almonds, egg whites and sugar and baked to a traditional recipe passed down from generation to generation.
Crisp and crunchy on the outside and fabulously soft inside, these small, dome shaped biscuits have a distinctive flavour, reminiscent of childhood.
Amaretti originated in Venice during the Renaissance period, and are traditionally served with a sweet wine or liqueur, but today are most often served with a coffee.
The Matilde Vicenzi story began in 1905 in a small shop in San Giovanni Lupatoto, near Verona, where she founded a bakery selling artisanal sweet pastries and amaretti based on her recipe book. The headquarters is still located near the site where this sweet story began.
