These are delightfully moist little almond cookies which come from a centuries old Italian recipe. There are many alternatives you can do to the base recipe. The photo shows plain Ricciarelli laced with Rum and Ricciarelli with orange and lemon, dipped in dark chocolate. I've made boxes of these cookies for people and they always seem to come back for more!
