The term amaretto refers to a type of pastry made with almond paste , made with sugar, egg white , sweet almond and bitter almond and apricot seeds .
It was probably invented by the Arabs and from the Mediterranean basin , especially from Sicily, passed later in the culinary traditions of the Normans, Spanish, French. Pilgrims and convents he assured the spread, made easier by the fact that the cake is not perishable.
Of this sweet are primarily two different versions: the macaroon type Saronno , crunchy and crumbly, and the macaroon type Redwing , softer and more similar to marzipan . Both have a rounded shape, as a small cap, and the surface cracked.
My recent order
I order two boxes of Amaretti Italian cookies (Biscotti) by Supremo Italiano - 35.3 oz. You sent two boxes in one package. Then a few weeks later you sent two more boxes in one package. I did not order the second two boxes. When I notified you, you said you couldn't take them back. However, you could give me a credit. That is wrong. You made the mistake, not me. I ordered and paid for two boxes. You sent four boxes and charged me for them. I want a refund for the two boxes sent that I did not order. Not a $25 coupon on my next order. A refund for the two boxes I did not order. Your invoice even said two boxes were ordered and two boxes were enclosed in the first order. Why you tried to say the second order I had ordered escapes me, except you wanted to make the mistake and give a credit. That is the only logical explanation. You, as far as I am concerned, care zip about customer satisfaction. Michael Looman
