Niccolina’s cookies are handmade with natural products following traditional Tuscan recipes. They contain little sugar and no preservatives nor flavouring agents. Made with almonds, egg white and sugar, the Amarettini have a distinct almond taste with a perfect blend of bitter and sweet. The original recipe is from the 18th century, when a young couple baked biscuits containing crushed apricot kernels as a gift to a bishop in the area of Milan. The recipe became a success and evolved to include almonds. Gluten free!
Niccolina's cookies will keep for 6 months unopened at room temperature. Once opened keep in an airtight container and consume within 2 weeks.

What about Niccolina
Better than home-baked!
We had heard great things about Niccolina and her sisters’ cookies, so we were very excited to visit their bakery. We arrived at their address and actually drove past it a couple of times before realizing we were indeed at the right place. There was no formal bakery, they were literally baking cookies inside their own home!
