Next week’s Tuesday with Dorie is a recipe for Chocolate Amaretti Torte. One of the main ingredients are amaretti cookies. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find these cookies anywhere, but that’s what you get when you live in rural America. ;) I really wanted to make the torte, so instead of passing I decided to google a few recipes to make the cookies myself. I did find quite a few, but settled on one from Martha’s site.
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 large egg whites
Pinch of kosher salt
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract (I doubled this)
1 tablespoon amaretto (I left this out)
1/2 cup turbinado sugar, for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
