- DescriptionThe recipe of the amaretti is an old secret which has been preserved by Lazzaroni since 1718. The story goes that at least three centuries ago the Cardinal of Milan unexpectedly visited the town of Saronno. To honor him, two young lovers concocted a mixture of sugar, apricot kernels and egg whites, cooking it in the oven and obtaining sultry round cookies. These cookies featured the bittersweet taste of almonds and sugar. Since then almost nothing has changed: the original recipe, the quality of the ingredients and the slow cooking deliver the full pleasure of the authentic Amaretti di Saronno, whose uniqueness made them the flagship of Lazzaroni specialties.
