No.120 Bourbon & Brown Sugar Amaretti Biscuits

Amaretti are delicate Italian biscuits. The only issue is that some people are not so fond of the strong amaretto flavour. I found that bourbon or whiskey can work well in these biscuits and switching from white sugar to brown sugar makes them richer. I like to “adulterate” these further by adding cinnamon, horrifying any Italian. I think these are pretty great.

170g of Soft Brown Sugar
