  • Description

    Amaretti di Saronno biscuits from Lazzaroni - classic crunchy individually wrapped Italian biscuits with a delicate almond flavour. Delicious with coffee or a glass of wine. Amaretti are also perfect as an accompaniment to your favourite dessert.

    The original amaretti biscuits were first created in the 18th century to celebrate the visit of the Cardinal of Milan to the town of Saronno.

    According to the legend, in 1718 the Cardinal of Milan decided to visit the Sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin of the Miracles in Saronno. In honour of his visit, a young couple prepared a dough based on sugar, almonds and egg white which, made to rise in the oven, was used to create round biscuits that were called Amaretti.

    Besides the legend, it was the Lazzaroni family, who moved to Saronno at the beginning of the 18th century, to become the flagship of this confectionery specialty.
