Italy is world famous for its food delicacies and cookies are a speciality of the Italian Chef. Italians love making everything from scratch, whether pasta, pizza dough or cookies. They use local ingredients and combine beautiful flavours together to create unique dishes and bakery products. Among the various cookies famous in Italy, Pignoli ranks at the top of the list. It is basically a moist cookie with a chewy kind of soft texture and has its origins in Sicily. You can identify it by its color which is light golden. A paste of grounded almonds is used to make Pignoli and pine nuts are filled into the cookie dough before baking.
Try your hand at Anginetti and Amaretti
Another brilliant recipe for a summer Italian cookie is Anginetti. Like several other Italian cookies, anginetti cookies are semi-sweet with a hint of lemon flavour. That is why it is considered as the must-have cookie on your summer barbeque menu! It is made using simple ingredients such as eggs, flour, vegetable shortening, sugar and a few other additional elements.
Amaretti is a unanimously loved by all Italians and is a favourite cookie in the country. Add it to your summer BBQ by making it at home from scratch. Today, Amaretti, also locally referred to as ‘Amretti di Sacronno’, is made is all Italian bakeries and is savored by the Italian community. The main ingredient in the cookie dough is almonds and the recipe is very simple and easy to make at your Brooklyn home.
I just wanted to let you know that our cookie order was delivered on Tuesday, 11/20/12, so we were able to enjoy them for Thanksgiving. I also wanted to thank you for the great customer service we received - specifically, that you responded to my inquiries about the delivery delay in a timely manner. Although the shipping delay was out of your control, it meant alot to have you call to explain the situation.
This was the first time we ordered from Circo's, but it certainly won't be the last. The cookies were delicious -- just like the ones we remembered from bakeries in New York. The rainbow cookies were among the best we ever had. After having to relocate to Texas, we were disappointed to find that the DFW area does not have what we call "real" bakeries. We tried ordering from other online bakery businesses who advertised NY style baked goods, but have not found any that truly captured what we remembered. That is, of course, until a friend (another displaced New Yorker) recommended Circo's.
Thank you again for the great service and for great products. Looking forward to ordering several pounds of rainbow cookies for Christmas to ship to other family members & friends -- I'll make sure to allow plenty of time for delivery :)
Thank you for following up!
