Ricciarelli are wonderful intense flavor almond cookies that originated in the town of Siena, Italy. Very popular year 'round, but especially at Christmas time! I like to add a spoonful of rum or orange zest to the dough, for variation. You can also use lemon, brandy or Amaretto. Dip the baked ricciarelli in melted chocolate, if desired. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
