Amaretti is the Italian name for macaroons, which means little bitter things. Primavera Amaretti macaroons 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 history of the Biscottificio Primavera began in 1965 in Vallese di Oppeano, Verona Italy. From the beginning the company has specialised in the production of Amaretti, Sfogliatine and Toscanucci; thanks to the intuitions and passion of the founding members, it contributes significantly to the growth of consumption in this market. The "passion" continues and in 1993 with the insertion of a line of Savoiardi, then followed in 1995 with the production of Panettoni and Pandori.
